A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products Christmas Tree Recycling Project

In February this year, A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products and A.W. Jenkinson Transport Limited took part in Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice ‘Treecycling’ Campaign for the third year in a row, helping them to recover and recycle more than 3,800 Christmas trees.

Over £70,000 was raised to help people living with life-limiting illness, which will go a long way in supporting the 400 people the Hospice cares for every day.

The 3,800 Christmas trees were chipped directly into the back of one of A.W. Jenkinson Transport’s walking floor trailers, at three different locations, by one of A.W. Jenkinson Forest Product’s Axtor chipper units. The material was then hauled to A.W. Jenkinson’s processing facility at Whitchurch for use in the biomass market.
