A Donation of Trees

Thursday, January 23rd 2014

With work commencing on a new local access road alongside the A1 several areas of recently planted trees and hedges have had to be dug up.  The Highways Agency and Carillion Morgan Sindall have donated many of these trees to Foxglove.

Several loads of trees have been delivered by Steve over the past few days, some of which have been planted temporarily in our tree nursery, before we find them permanent homes.  Volunteers this morning worked planting Hawthorn along the ancient hedge lines on the middle moor.  This was done to fill in some gaps where previous planting had not taken well.  This hedge line acts as a corridor to help attract more wildlife into the reserve.

We are very grateful for the kind donation of these trees and hope that we can foster links with these companies as they work in the area over the coming years.
