Tree Care

Tuesday, October 6th 2015

Today the volunteers worked hard to clear the overgrowing vegetation from around some of our young trees.

These trees were planted by a school group as part of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations. We clear the vegetation that is growing around the trees to give them the best chance of growing to full maturity.

Whilst clearing the vegetation we also took the chance to check the health of the trees in the tubes and we are very pleased to report that all bar one are successfully growing!

It was a tough job in wet conditions but the volunteers got stuck into it with their usual gusto and cleared the whole bank by the end of the day. We would like to thank you all for you hard work completing this valuable task.

I have been impressed by how much these fields have been cleared. I have an extra little land behind my home. I know that the trees just need to be cleared then I will be able to mow the grass like normally.
