Tree Planting

Thursday, March 5th 2015

During the stormy weather over the winter months we have lost over 50 trees around the reserve. Volunteers spent most of the day planting young Larch saplings to replace these. We under planted areas of woodland and added some to our new woodland blocks near to the lake and outdoor classroom.

This work will help to increase the species diversity, as well as creating a varied age structure in our woodland areas, providing habitat for a wide variety of wildlife as these grow and mature. As always, thank you to everyone who has helped us out today.
