Additional text
National Highways has committed to plant an additional 3m trees by 2030, over and above the ones required for business as usual. Over the next five years we will be securing seeds of UK origin and supplying them to nurseries, to cultivate until they are ready to plant out. We want our arrangements to be simple and mutually beneficial and want to understand how nurseries could meet our requirement for national coverage so the soil types and climate conditions necessary for a wide range of species are available.

Nurseries are invited so they can hear about our plans and influence the detail. This is a different type of contract for NH and we want one that fits with the standard processes and activities that nurseries operate under.

The event will be held on Microsoft Teams on 1st December between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. To register interest in attending please e-mail NurseryServiceContract@nationalhighways.co.uk
