Back in October, we discussed our plans to brighten up Bridgend County by planting 300 trees donated by the Woodland Trust. 

We’ve been busy in Caerau, Maesteg, North Cornelly and Pencoed over the past few weeks with the help of some of you in the community, including pupils from Garth Primary, Corneli Primary and Afon y Felin Primary. Thank you to everyone that volunteered at our events – it was lovely to see so many friendly and curious faces, even in the freezing cold weather!

Here’s our Communities and Commercial Business Partner, Rachel Lovell and our Safety, Health and Environmental Partner, Paula Terrett showing us what we got up to in Maesteg!

As part of our commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, our native broadleaf trees have been planted in areas to support decarbonisation, encourage biodiversity and to prevent flooding. Find out more about where these trees have been planted.

You can still be involved! It’s important to us that we continue to look after our trees as they grow and flourish, but we can’t do this without your help. If you notice any issues with the trees, please let us know at so we can check it out.
