SHARE November update

Free Trees Four hundred tree saplings are available to SHARE members and friends. Last year SHARE applied for and were successful in obtaining saplings through the I DIG TREES project. Members planted them on hedges, footpaths and at the Recreation Field, this year we have another 400 to plant and have secured more great locations, DO YOU want some, would you like to plant some? WE WOULD LOVE the children to be involved, so they can watch their trees mature . With the devasting Ash Die Back many of our parish trees will have to be felled before they fall down, our views and hedges will be altered significantly.

Here’s what we have: • Parkland trees – Common Alder, Green Beech, Silver Birch, English Oak and Hornbeam (20 of each) • Large garden trees – Downy Birch, Wild Cherry, Rowan, Sessile Oak and Field Maple (30 of each) • Small garden trees – Grey Willow, Rowan, Hazel, Crab Apple and Bird Cherry (30 of each) If you have room in your garden, on hedgerows, or better still a plot of land for a small wood, please email or phone Sue or David on 382397.
