Tree Planting

Tuesday, March 19th 2013

With the felling work along the Sycamore block now finished the re-planting has finally begun! Twelve volunteers started the day by carrying the 340 trees, stakes and tubes up into the woodland.

The area is being replanted with a mix of native trees, including Sessile Oak, Alder Buckthorn and Bird Cherry.

The recent bad weather has put us behind schedule with the planting work; inspite of the snow, the ground underneath was not frozen so we could start getting the trees in.

Students from the Dales School came up at lunchtime to work with our volunteers and plant their own tree.

Everyone worked flat out, altogether over 250 trees were planted during the day.  This hard work has allowed us to catch up a bit and the end of the winter work is now in sight!
