We are coming to the end of the Winter planting season – just 3 more work parties to go before the end of March when we have to stop planting. The trees are already starting to bud – and today’s work party enjoyed some wonderful sunshine.

This spurred the volunteers on to plant over 3000 trees, a fantastic achievement!

We still have plenty more trees to plant before the end of the month, though!

The 3 work parties left are on Wednesday 15th March, Tuesday 21st March and Monday 27th March.

If you haven’t been before and would like to come along to help in planting the last trees of the season, please email heartwood@woodlandtrust.org.uk for further details.

We usually meet at 10am, with the meeting location varying according to where the work parties are based.

The sessions finish around 3pm, but people come and go as they need to. Hot drinks are provided but if you are staying for the whole day, please bring your own lunch. Please also make sure that you are wearing suitable clothing and footwear.

Are you planning on coming to Countryfile Live this week? It is running at Blenheim Palace from Thursday 4th August to Sunday 7th August and the Woodland Trust will be there.

Amongst all the hustle and bustle, we will be hosting our own #TreeParty picnic in our Tipi’s. Come and say hello and try your hand at willow weaving, tree dressing, and our forest school or make some bug hotels for all the woodlice and spiders that are burrowed in your garden.

We also have games and activities for you to enjoy. We want to get you back to nature and there are plenty of ways to do it. Why not pick up one of our picnic packs and enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors?

For further details, go to:


We hope to see you there!
