Tree Care

Tuesday, April 28th 2015

Today we had fourteen hard working volunteers out completing some after care on trees that have been planted in the past here at Foxglove.

This involved pulling up the tree guards and removing any vegetation from around the base of the tree and then replacing the guard and straightening any wonky stakes.

We also removed a few trees that had unfortunately died, however completing this vital work on a yearly basis gives the trees the best chance of reaching maturity.

Due to the hard work of our team of volunteers today we got through a large section of trees around the bottom of the lake. We would like to thank everyone who braved the sleet and hail to complete this task today.
