We got the rest of our tree pack from the Woodland Trust, planted today. Somehow we found ourselves north of the picnic clearing but it just seemed an ideal spot to start putting them in. In total we have planted 105 native British trees. The birds and other wildlife will love us for this.
John, Marcus and myself worked on getting the trees in whilst Aaron worked on the path widening.
I must say, it is looking rather good.
We planted some up on the bank as well. We are going to pollard all the other trees around the saplings so everything has a chance to grow.
A quick look up and down shows how lovely and wide the path is.
And lastly the obligatory fungi picture.
Next one is making our big round bench in the bird-box clearing, after that we will be cutting back the trees where we planted saplings today and then we will do some widening on the southerly part of the path. We are bringing the bench on-site via the gate way down past the clearing.
The bench has been funded by the Elliott’s Field #fieldgoodgrant and we are extremely grateful for their support.
Thanks all for today.
