Banks Renewables has been working with The Tweed Forum to identify a six hectare area in need of woodland generation after submitting a proposal for 14 wind turbines at Quixwood, near Grantshouse.

16 hectares of woodland would be felled for the project, but because Banks Renewable‘s ultimate aim of renewable energy is to care for and protect the environment, they are going above and beyond the minimum requirements to replant the displaced trees.

Phil Dyke, director at Banks Renewables, said: “It’s crucial that when planning wind power sites we not only ensure that we do not cause adverse effect to the local ecosystem, but make a positive contribution to the area that can be enjoyed for years to come.”

Rather than simply replace the felled area with commercial forestry, Banks Renewables‘ plans include the planting of broad leaf native trees, heath land and acid grass to encourage biodiversity  and a flourishing new wildlife habitat on the Quixwood site.

The Tweed Forum has discussed the possibility of similar work in the Eye catchment should this development be approved.
