Friends celebrate with tree planting

The Friends of Tawd Valley celebrated the Woodland Trust’s Tree Charter Day on November 30th by inviting local residents to join their tree planting event in Tawd Valley Park.

This annual celebration of woods, trees and people attracted over 60 people who helped plant 900 saplings to form a 150 metre hedgeline.

The event was part of the The Woodland Trust campaign ‘The Big Climate Fightback’ which aims to get a million people pledging to plant trees. Once established the new hedge will be a very beneficial wildlife habitat sheltering and feeding a host of creatures and of course absorbing carbon.
