Green Policy

Here at Spectrum we love the outdoors and as a company feel we have a responsibility to put a little bit back into the community. We're delighted to partner with the Forest of Marston Vale and for every candidate we place, a tree is planted in the Forest. As well as a nice thing to do, we like to think it symbolises new beginnings and the growth possible from a new position.

At the last count we've planted 279 trees ...and counting!

Our partnership with the Forest of Marston Vale 

Since the early 1990's, the Forest of Marston Vale have been planting trees to transform the landscape between Bedford and Milton Keynes to create the Forest - growing a green, thriving place for the community to live, work and play.

The Forest being created is a community forest.  It's for everyone to enjoy and benefit from, but as a charity, the Forest of Marston Vale needs support to look after our legacy and plant new woodlands for you and future generations to enjoy.

The charity has planted over 1.5million trees to start creating the Forest, transforming over 60 square miles once dominated by brickworks and clay pits. The vision is to have trees covering 30% of the Forest area - that's another 5million trees - and they need help to achieve this.

Why create a Forest? Because forests matter to all of us, as well as the wildlife that live in them. They help to cool and clean our air, lock up carbon and slow the rate of climate change. They reduce flooding and stabilise water levels, protect and sustain livelihoods, and provide valuable raw materials.  They can even keep us healthier. You could call that the magic of trees!
