Tree Planting

Tuesday, April 5th 2011

Around 250 trees were planted by volunteers today. Several clumps of Juniper trees were placed around the site.These rare BAP listed species are unusual in that although their 'fruit' is called a berry it is actually a cone! The berries take between 18 months and 3 years to ripen.  A few Oak saplings were used to fill gaps in the woodland and the spoil heap from the lake project is now planted up with Willow too. Hopefully these will stabilise the bank.
