Bentley is laying down roots for the future by planting 100 saplings at the end of its centenary year as part of National Tree Week in the U.K..

As Bentley Motors approaches the end of its centenary year, the company is investing in a more sustainable future at its factory by planting 100 native British trees around the site in Crewe.

The project has been completed during the winter tree-planting season in time for National Tree Week in the U.K., which stretches from 23 November to 1 December 2019, and recognises the importance of planting more trees to tackle climate change and protect biodiversity.

The trees planted around the site in Crewe include 10 oak trees which have been planted outside office buildings and 15 cherry trees which line the approach to the company's main entrance on Pyms Lane. A further 70 trees which include maple, beech, walnut, lime and elm saplings, have been planted along the boundaries of the Legends social facility. Additionally, 10 fruit trees have been relocated from an area marked for development to create a new orchard outside the visitor reception area.
