newcastle moss tree

Northumbrian Water is committed to protecting and enhancing the environment, so has installed  this Moss Tree for the benefit of North East communities and to move towards it's target of carbon neutrality. The idea for the Moss Tree came about as part of the first ever Northumbrian Water Innovation Festival in 2017, where we joined with Ordnance Survey and  other partners  to explore the subject of 'How Green Is Your City'.

Northumbrian Water's Clive Surman-Wells talks about England's first Moss Tree. What is it? How does it work?
England's first pollution-busting "moss tree" has been installed in Newcastle, where it will purify air in the city centre and create opportunities for research into the benefits of the plants' natural filtering abilities.

Lessons learned from the Moss Tree and the data it captures will be used by Northumbrian Water and partners including Newcastle City Council, and will also be made available to other interested organisations such as schools and universities.

Northumbrian Water would also like to thank Newcastle City Council and EverGen Systems, the supplier of this Moss Tree, for their support. Evergen are the exclusive UI( supplier of the revolutionary Moss Tree, also known as CityTree.
