Saturday 9th January - Planting at Borrow Wood
With the lockdown announced, T4S have been working against the clock to get the remaining saplings in the ground before the planting window ends.
Working in pairs, in staggered shifts (in order to comply with the restrictions) we managed to create a beautiful new copse at Borrow Wood park, with over 300 trees successfully planted! In conjunction with Friends of Spondon Parks, the area for the new copse was carefully planned and we hope will provide many years of enjoyment for local residents.
Here are a few photos of 'before':
And a few during and after:
We're very disappointed we haven't been able to include volunteers at this latest planting session. We hope our followers understand that our priorities at the moment are to keep people safe, and to plant the trees we already have had delivered.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to all the local residents (and their friendly dogs!) for coming to say a socially distanced hello and have a chat. It was lovely hearing such positive feedback about our work. Thank you everybody!
We still have some saplings left to plant this season, so expect another update very soon.
Take care and stay safe.
