It’s our Big Tree Plant next month so one of our main tasks will be to ensure that land is clear for the big day.
The trees already in the ground need our help to help them to survive, we will clear back growth from the fledgling saplings, and then mulch them with woodchip from our stockpile. There are over 4,000 young trees in the woods, so plenty of helping hands are needed! We also maintain a network of paths to improve access to the woods, which local people have told us they enjoy using.
We meet 10am at the Dane Valley Woods HQ in Dane Valley allotments at the end of St Peters Footpath, or you can find us in the woods. Follow this Google Map link – we are easy to spot in our hi-viz yellow jackets!
There is no need to book – we provide all tools and safety equipment, but please wear a sturdy pair of shoes and come dressed for the weather.
All ages welcome, under 16s to be accompanied by an adult. Hot drink refreshments are provided at the end of the morning for all hard working volunteers.
Don’t forget the clocks go back one hour on Saturday night!
