More Trees For Helmdon?
I have recently been asked to take on the role of Tree Warden for Helmdon.
It seems there are relatively few responsibilities but lots of opportunities and the first one I would like to explore is getting some tree planting underway in the spring.
One possibility that has been suggested is a community orchard. Another opportunity would be to get a free tree planting pack (between 100 and 400 trees) from the Woodland Trust to create a wood, coppice or hedge somewhere where the public can have access to them. This offer is part of the WT's plan to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee next year. But if we apply we will need to have a site or sites where we can put the trees - and we would need some volunteers.
So do you think tree planting would be a good idea? Do you know of any possible sites which could be used? Would you be able to help with the planting?
