Stand Up For Trees

At the bottom of our garden is a field we run as a Trust. In the field, we’ve planted numerous trees over the years. In the last ten years, we’ve grown quite a few from seed (about two dozen): alders, oaks, scots pine and birches. Some we’ve had donated from friends (apples trees grown from pips by kids at school). Some we’ve transplanted from places where they probably wouldn’t have thrived (ashes and sycamores). Some I’ve been given as birthday presents (dawn redwood and silver birch) and two were Christmas trees we wanted to replant after the festivities were over … three more next week on the 30th November (a hazel my son grew, an oak and a sycamore growing out of the concrete in my driveway) … trees are brilliant!DSCF5995.JPG
