National Tree Week and Million trees in one day event

National Tree Week

23rd November – 1st December 2019

National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season (November to March each year). The Tree Council, one of the UK’s leading charities for trees, first established National Tree Week in March 1975 in response to the national replanting required after the outbreak of Dutch Elm disease.

As part of National Tree Week, the parish will be making available a limited number of small trees for planting at the Lilac Field.

To mark National Tree Week, the Woodland Trust are also having an event to plant one million trees in one day! The trust wants everyone to pledge to plant a tree on Saturday 30th November.

If you are unable to plant a tree at home, why not plant one at the Lilac Field.
A tree, bamboo cane and rabbit guard will be provided free of charge.
Trees available on a first come, first served basis.  Planting from:

Saturday 23rd November to Saturday 30th November 2019.

To arrange a convenient time for planting ring or text Tom on:

Individuals or small family groups welcome.

(availability of trees will depend on arrival of supply from The Woodland Trust)
