Hemplow Wood and Marsden Golf Course plantation

Back to the Hemplow Wood site today, to finish planting our 200 trees. We had about 70 left to plant, which was just right as there were only four of us planting. A pleasant morning, not exactly sunny, but the rain held off, and it was quite mild, t-shirt weather for digging for me.

Philip and Dave were the other side of the clough in the Marsden Golf course plantation, doing maintenance work with the Society's chainsaw. Philip had proper chainsaw training last year, and we admired his technique - even if this particular tree was too oddly shaped to be correctly cut. We all agreed that Philip looks very fetching in his safety gear.

Our cake was coconut crunch, which was very popular. Thanks again to my mother for providing us with these homemade treats each week.
