Intrepid members of the Redland Green Community Group braved the freezing February conditions to plant 105 trees on Redland Green.

The trees were provided by The Woodland Trust as part of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations and included a sapling grown from one of the royal estates (identified by a ribbon for those who want to seek it out).

Species planted included oak, hawthorn, hazel, blackthorn, birch and rowan, and supplemented previous plantings in the wildlife hedge along the back of St Oswald's Road, and the woods at the western edge of the Green.
