Tree Planting

Come join us for tree-planting fun! We’ll be planting a shelter belt for biodiversity and creating a brand-new woodland.

This one-day course will provide an introduction to the importance of trees considering planting objectives, species selection and tree care.

We are holding multiple tree planting events from January – March 2023 in partnership with Coed Hen Ffordd.
