Tree planting, Thursday 6 March 2014
You are invited to join members of the Group and local school children to plant ten new trees on Redland Green on Thursday 6th March 2014 from 10.00am .
Please meet by Redland Green Farm. Tools will be provided, though it would be helpful if you can bring your own spade. Your own gloves and stout boots are advisable.
We have ten trees to plant: three fruit trees, two Hawthorn, one Rowan, one Silver Birch and a Scots Pine. These are provided through Tree PiPs: the Mayor's scheme to increase tree cover in the city. For more information about this scheme, see: http://www.bristol.gov.uk/page/environment/treebristol
In addition, we'll be planting a mature Hawthorn and a Holm Oak. These two have been sponsored by members of RGCG.
The new trees are mainly replacements for those which have been lost from the Green over the years.
This is phase 1 of the Green's tree planting scheme agreed at previous RGCG meetings. If anyone wishes to donate any monies towards the trees sponsored by the Group, please contact the Group's treasurer: email@example.com .
