The community have been granted a further 420 trees from the Woodland Trust, and on a cold and damp Saturday in November, a bunch of hardy volunteers set out to plant them!!
This involved a whole range of tasks to be undertaken, from the building of the protective fencing, the trenching, the planting, and the tying of canes and plastic coils. [But] with a dedicated team, and each person with their own task, it becomes a process that works well and smoothly, and the trees get planted in best production line order.
Thank you to Donna, Cody, Angus, Angus, Calum D, Louise, Alister and Stuart for your time and enthusiasm, and for all working so well together.
Around 300 were planted in that first go on the 18th, and we will be organising another session to complete the remainder shortly.
Please let us know if you would like to get involved.
With those currently being planted, it brings the total number of trees planted around the village to over 1000 in the last year. This is a fantastic achievement, and hopefully, as they grow and we look after them, they will bring shelter and visual interest to the village, as well as improved habitat for birds and other plants and life.
A big thank you to the Woodland Trust for their ongoing and much appreciated support, and hopefully together we can continue to work to benefit both the community and environment here.
