Spring Tree-Planting Event 2017

We hope to hold a tree planting session in the village on Saturday 17th March, and, as there are over 400 (Woodland Trust donated) trees to get into the ground, the help of as many people in the community as possible would be much appreciated!

We are keen to develop shelter belts here and there to provide shelter and habitat locally, and to help with drainage and the look of the place.

The gathering point will be at the Fank at 10am, so we hope to see you there!

We expect to have a small digger to assist with the heavy lifting, but spades would be appreciated, and there is a task for everyone…from turning over the earth, to planting the tree, to ensuring that the soil is firmly pressed down, that the tree is watered , and that it is fitted with a protective plastic sleeve, cane and tie.

3 people planted 105 trees in 2 and a half hours in November, so a few more volunteers will help ensure that this larger number of plants can be secured snuggly in their new homes in a similar amount of time.
