Yes, you read it correctly, we actually planted some trees rather then cutting them down.
It was Reece, Aaron and myself today. We got stuck in and planted about sixty trees.
They are all native British varieties that include hawthorn, rowan, blackthorn, silver birch, hazel and common oak. We got the trees from the Woodland Trust, a great charity doing fantastic things. They have earned a place on our sponsor page.
We are putting in a bigger round bench here and the rectangle bench will go down the path into another area. We want to attract as much bird activity as possible and I, for one, cannot wait to start recording what we are seeing.
It is certainly a big shift in what we have been doing. We still want a nice wide path, but we also want to create a couple of hubs where people can meet and talk about what they are seeing around them. This is how friendships are forged.
Next one is next Wednesday 29th November, where we will be putting in the rest of our trees, and then we will be building our round bench on Wednesday 6th December so as much help as possible will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for today.
