The Trees on the Land project has just completed a busy 2018 planting day with almost 600 small sites planted with native trees on and around Saturday 10th February.
A huge thanks to everyone who took part in the tree planting – The weather was pretty awful and very cold in most places but most people managed to wrap up warm and get out planting on the day. Particular thanks go to those kind people hosting collection points and to others who helped move trees to people further out from the collections.
Just over 130,000 trees were distributed for planting as small woodlands, shelter belts, hedgerows, coppice, agroforestry and orchard projects. Planting sites are located on farms and smallholdings, at community sites, in schools and colleges and with many other landowners across the 32 counties with a significant rise this season in the number of orchard and agroforestry projects included.
The team look forward to announcing schemes for 2019 over the coming months.
