Good planting progress at Wapley Bushes Work Morning on Wed 19 February

The tree planting work morning took place on Wednesday 19 February, having been postponed from the Sunday because of the high winds. 8 hardy volunteers planted 33 native broadleaf trees that will help replace the high canopy as the tall ash trees gradually die off.

The species we planted were oak, black poplar, small-leaved lime, alder, whitebeam, silver birch and rowan - a nice mix that will provide a variety of habitats in years to come.

Our next work morning will be on Saturday 14 March, meeting at 10.00 am at the Shire Way gate. This will be the last Wapley tree planting session for this winter, but there will also be lighter tasks for anyone who prefers them. Please come and join us!
