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.

The new planting season is officially here, so we now have work parties running every week with the first one taking place yesterday. The main activity through the winter is tree planting, although work parties do carry out other activities too.

We started off in sunshine, survived a heavy downpour just after lunch and the sun came out again for the rest of the afternoon.
