Trees need quite a bit of maintenance in the early years until whips become more established plants that can hold their own in their environment. This means that ongoing costs arise from doing planting new trees on our sites and this Winter we are planting thousands! Extra costs we have to cover from our limited budgets include capital items and activities like tree supports, weed control, strimming, watering in droughts and protection from grazing animals.

Support our efforts with this unique gift of a tree planting experience day to plant new woodland and hedges, in total 4,000 new trees will be planted at Wandlebury Country Park and Coton Countryside Reserve in the Winter of 2021-22

We want to raise £1,000 to support the maintenance of these new trees. Gift someone special or treat yourself and connect to nature - you will be planting a mixture of native trees like lime, oak, beech, yew, hazel, hawthorne, spindle, holly and birch.

Your day includes a guided tree planting experience, woodland management walk and talk, Winter tree identification walk and talk and some amazing local food! Its the ideal treat for tree lovers!
