There is a common misconception that cutting down a tree is not good for the environment. Here at Chip Chip we have an ethical planting policy in place. We ensure that all the wood purchased from our supply chain comes from properly managed woodlands that comply with the Forestry Commission Standard for managing woodlands. That means for every tree that gets cut down for our wood chip production many more get replanted. These new growing trees absorb more carbon than mature trees. Only 2% of these managed forests are harvested in any one year, leaving 98% to absorb the carbon released.
