Trees for Life
The tree planting season has now arrived and I have been working with several schools during National Tree Planting Week, 26th November to 3rd December, to create new woodlands and help improve hedgerows.
Summer has now finally gone and autumn has come in with the trees showing fantastic colours beneath clear blue skies. Temperatures are dropping and it feels that all creatures are either starting to get ready for winter or preparing to leave.
As part of our Trees for Life work, we support the Hagge Woods Trust, which manages the 25-acre Three Hagges Jubilee Wood, and are helping them achieve their aim to develop it into a beautiful and thriving community woodland. Biologist, Lin Hawthorne, is helping to lead this pioneering approach to woodland creation and shares progress from the project through her ‘Nature Notes’ blogs for Bettys.
