The Town Council applied for funding from the Forestry Commission’s Treescapes Fund last summer, and the good news is we were successful!
Notts County Council and Via hav planted the trees and will look after them for us for the first 3 years, when they should be well established.
The idea was to plant trees in urban areas to create a more attractive and environmentally supportive environment near to where we live. We’ve deliberately chosen attractive, native trees that are good for wildlife and soak up lots of carbon. When the trees are established we plan to work with local schools to re-wild the areas underneath the new trees.
The trees are in
- Knowle Park – Whitebeams
- Stag Recreation Ground – Wild Cherries
- Chapel on the Hill – Mountain Ash
