CHARLECOTE Park is planting its way towards a greener future.
Non-native and invasive trees near the grade-I listed property are being removed and replaced with native trees.
New hedges are also being planted across the site in a bid to support local wildlife at the National Trust-cared for property.
But general manager Kellie Scott says the work will not stop there.
She told the Observer: “We take our responsibility towards future conservation and climate issues very seriously.
“We’re hoping to make changes across the property in the next few years to do our bit for the environment – from installing electric vehicle charge points in the car park, harvesting rain water for flushing toilets to save water, adding solar panels to non-historic buildings and moving towards using renewable sources for our heating.”
