Our story

by David Gilliland from Brook Hall Estate - Zero Carbon Tour interview

Our business developed into growing short rotation coppice willow as a source of biomass fuel throughout the 1990s – we are now looking to extend that to looking at our carbon capture potential using our landscape as a means of carbon storage.

For us, the improvements to soil health make it worth embracing sustainability. Healthier soil can store more carbon, and becoming carbon neutral is a side product of trying to improve the growth rate of our plants.

Our advice

The best advice that I could give is not to look for a silver bullet when looking at reaching net-zero. We need to look at a variety of different things, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Look at what your assets are, and how you can optimise those.
