Tree Planting with Forest of Bradford

Friday 15th December, 2017
We will be planting at a farm in Stanbury

As tradition dictates, today we joined Forest of Bradford for a pre-Christmas tree planting session. We were planting in the valley below Stanbury, looking across to Oldfield, on the shady side of the hill. So, whilst it was a lovely winter’s day, the icy patches on the grass did not melt but luckily the roads weren’t too bad. 

The trees were a mix of oak, rowan, birch, alder and willow. They will complement a couple of other planting schemes that Forest of Bradford have done along the valley. 

We were ideally placed to finish off the afternoon with a drink at The Silent Inn to acknowledge all the volunteering effort throughout 2017.
