Partnering with DPD

Fire damaged forest at Wareham Forest

Our partnership with DPD

When fire swept through Wareham in May 2020, destroying an area the size of 350 football pitches and decimating critical habitats across this rare and unique Site of Special Scientific Interest, DPD made an incredible contribution to the forest’s recovery campaign through their innovative Eco Fund.

Funding the purchase of new fire break equipment and helping us to replant the site with 79,000 new trees, DPD have kickstarted the recovery of this important forest.

We are delighted that this initial work at Wareham has developed into a new 4-year partnership that will plant over 12,000 trees across 4 sites, starting at Colliers Wood, Greater Manchester in winter 2021/22. We will also be exploring volunteering opportunities for DPD staff across the Forestry England estate to help drive engagement and promote the health and wellbeing of staff.
