Oh, this Dale Vince is a real eco warrior is he??? His eco park (really a football stadium) will be made virtually all out of fire retardant wood. Now I don't want to burst his bubble bbuuuutttt, fire retardant wood is nearly all deciduous trees. For a start how many trees will this take? Quite a few. But the eco bit doesn't even enter into the equation when you realise deciduous trees are the most slow growing of all the trees and the most rarest. Being the hardest. Not softwood like pines etc.
So to replenish those that he cuts down will take centuries to grow. Very eco friendly that.
