If you have land in the Colne Valley and want some trees, talk to us.

Last winter we planted over 5000 trees!

Parkwood Wood (needs a better name than that)

Edouard, hard at work with his mini-spade

This week we were at Parkwood in Golcar, a site organised by the landowner Richard.

We helped plant over 500 trees in an attempt to turn these old grazing fields in to community woodland. A mixture of Oak and Ash, and using canes, spirals, and biodegradable mulch mats in some cases.

We were, Geoff, Cath, Diane, Trevor, Peter, Bob, Brian, other Peter, Philip, me, Damian, Rowan, Dave, Edouard, Maxime, P.A and Claudine.

Cake was a delicious date and walnut slice, and Damian handed round some equally delicious sloe gin.

Geoff digging! Damian looks on in awe.
