Skipton Properties

YDMT's partnership with Skipton Properties is supporting the creation of 100,000 new trees as part of our Together for Trees campaign.

Reducing environmental impact  

Skipton Properties pride themselves on their ability to bring brownfield land back to life. When they do build on green field land, they mitigate the impact of new homes with specialist planting schemes, as well as working with expert arboculturalists to ensure that their work doesn’t impact existing trees. After meeting the YDMT team they agreed to go one step further and plant trees in and around Yorkshire to reduce their environmental impact further.

Tree planting team   

Skipton Properties committed to planting 250 trees in 2019. The first 25 trees were planted by the Skipton Properties family team: Managing Director, Sarah Barraclough and Sales, Marketing and Design Director, Caroline Verity at Howgill Side Woodland near Bolton Abbey. During the next tree planting season (which runs from November to March), other members of the Skipton Properties team will help to plant more trees in the area.

Sarah Barraclough, Managing Director of Skipton Properties, said:

“We’re delighted to have planted the first 25 of 250 trees that we’ll be planting in 2019. As well as being a positive environmental addition, many of the new woodlands that we’re helping to create will also have public access, so we’ll be creating beautiful new spaces that everyone, including our customers, can enjoy.
The initiative will also allow our staff to take part in a practical and rewarding conservation project that supports their local area across the year, which they’re all really excited about.”
