Community Tree Planting suspended

The community tree planting days in The Warren planned for January and February are another event to fall victim to national lockdown restrictions.  The parish council, with agreement of The Tree Council, have been forced to cancel the planned days.  Social distancing regulations and ‘Stay at Home’ guidance make it impossible for volunteers to get together.  With the tree planting season ending in March the decision has been taken not to reschedule another date until autumn this year.

The good news is that 2900 tree and shrub saplings will be planted by professional contractors MJO Forestry in the next few weeks.  A variety of species native to this area and suitable for the landscape will be planted both inside and outside the area of deer fencing.  See more information about the planting scheme.

An area will be kept clear to enable planting to take place later this year and a further 800 saplings planted by our community volunteers.  All fingers are crossed that we will be able to get together in a more normal environment and make it a good day out.
