About the event

A volunteer afternoon to help support the future success of our new woodland, while also learning about the site, the species planted and best practice for woodland management. 

Our 74-acre new woodland was planted with over 42,000 trees back in 2016/17. The trees are thankfully thriving and many of them are now outgrowing their tree guards which were used to protect the saplings in their early stages. We now need to remove and collect these tree tubes to ensure: 

  • The trees aren't restricted and can continue to flourish
  • The used tubes don't hinder or cause damage to other flora or fauna
  • The tubes can be recycled

You don't need any former knowledge to take part - all required instruction will be given on the day. You would just need: 

  • Warm clothes
  • Gloves
  • Suitable footwear (waterproof boots or wellies are highly recommended as the ground can be muddy)

We will also provide hot drinks to warm up after the session, and we can tell you more about the plantation and answer any questions you might have on managing woodland and wildflower meadows. 

The event will be completely outdoors. Parking will be provided on-site. 

Please note: There are a limited number of places, so please ensure you register for a ticket before attending. 

Any questions, please let us know. We hope to see you there!
