Sven Christiansen plc is proud to have provided the funding to plant six distinctive new Liquidambar trees, which will take root along a main highway adjacent to our West Midlands factory in Kingswinford.

Sven supplies high-quality office furniture nationwide, all manufactured at our facility on The Pensnett Estate, near where the new trees will take root.

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environmental services at Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (DMBC), said: “We’re very grateful for this kind gesture by Sven Christiansen, which will help spruce up one of the borough’s busiest roads.

“They got in touch with the council because they wanted to give something back to the community, and I look forward to seeing the trees grow and blossom over the coming years.”

Trees for health and wellbeing

William O’Brien, Sven’s Managing Director, commented: “Not only do trees improve the look of an area, they also have a cooling effect, absorb pollutants and trap particulates.

“As a manufacturer using timber, concerned about the environment and extremely proud of our FSC® credentials, we felt that planting trees was an appropriate green initiative that we hope other local firms may follow.”

DMBC’s Arboricultural Officer, Andy Allison, was on hand to supervise a team from across our factory. Long-term advocate for green initiatives, Andy said: “Another great addition to the Council’s urban forest, and I’d wholly recommend getting involved in similar projects.”

The tree planting took place along Stallings Lane near the entrance to The Pensnett Estate in Kingswinford on Wednesday 1st November.
