Saving Young Trees
|Convenor: Philip Evans||Vacancies|
U3A Tree Planting Group 3rd Meeting 5th March 2020.
A small gathering. A new member with allotment volunteers for local farmer with strong community connections and suggests possible opening for consideration of planting trees around the farm. Has a collection of small trees available.
Another new member has notified a possible site in Beccles near Men’s Shed, either 4 big trees or 10 hedgerow trees. Will need volunteers, choose species and ensure permissions available.
A keen Parish Council offered possible sites on parish land – three oaks planted. Total of 18 oaks planted out in the past 6 months.
There has been progress on several fronts by various members. We need to hear what they have done.
Join this project if you care about saving trees and planting them out. We have so far collected around 30 very young trees, from two-leaf to two foot. We need native trees found wild, such as Oak, Ash, Hornbeam, Birch, Hawthorn, Holly etc.
We intend to plant them where they are needed, in town, country or road verge.
