An IT disposal company in Pershore planted 800 trees in a single day.

OCM Business Systems Ltd worked with Worcestershire Wildlife Trust to plant the trees at Tiddesley Woods last Thursday.

The company, which specialises in reconditioning, recycling and reselling of IT technology, has also funded 560 of the trees it planted.

Jennine Gilbert-Woods, managing director at OCM, said: "At OCM, we believe in the importance of fostering a sustainable relationship with our environment.

"Our collaboration with Worcestershire Wildlife Trust allows us to actively engage in initiatives that promote local biodiversity and environmental preservation.

"It's a privilege to contribute to the well-being of our local community."

An eight-member team from OCM visited Tiddesley Woods to plant trees in the orchard at the reserve. 

Fundraising officer for Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Caitlin Stuart, said: "We really appreciate the team at OCM coming out and helping us to plant trees in our Tiddesley Wood nature reserve.

"The area they’ll be planting in is one where we’ve lost a lot of trees to ash dieback so it’s great that they’re adding oak, hornbeam, small-leaved lime and other native trees that will add diversity and help to make the woodland more resilient to disease and climate change."

OCM also donated £500 to the Pershore Community Cupboard and plans to deliver hampers to local schools this week.

The company's operational manager, Paul Mills, said: "Our company places a strong emphasis on sustainable practices and community engagement, aligning its business operations with values that prioritise environmental responsibility and social impact."
