Jubilee Wood Planting

Friday, March 23rd 2012

To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, hundreds of trees were planted today as part of the Richmondshire Eco Week.

Tree Planting

Children from three different local schools came along to lend a hand and some volunteers from the Richmond Rotarians.

By lunchtime, one area was completely planted with a mix of hard and softwoods.


Staff from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation geo-spatial and environmental advisory teams joined in too!

Down by the beck, Blackthorn is in flower and Chiffchaffs could be heard everywhere singing in the sunshine.

Our thanks go to Colin and Jez who did lots of the organising and to the different teams who between them planted roughly 700 trees; these  included a Royal Oak which was specially grown and presented to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
