Tree Planting Day

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our first tree-planting day of 2012. We planted around 100 trees: ash, sweet chestnut and Italian alder. A good day was had by all, and the trees will give us shelter from the wind, nuts, fertility (in the case of the nitrogen fixing Italian alder) and firewood in the years to come. We have a longterm plan for a community firewood sheme, check back in 15 years time when the trees have grown for more details! The next tree planting day is 4th February 2012 – do get in touch if you’d like to join us!
