Yesterday saw the start of National Tree Week:
The Tree Council > Take Part > National Tree Week
And yesterday saw a lot of tree-planting happening in the Byes:
This Saturday 25th November Friends of the Byes helped to celebrate the start of National Tree Week http://www.treecouncil.org.uk/Take-Part/National-Tree-Week by planting some Cider apples in Sid Meadow and some Silver Birch in the wildlife copses to fill a few gaps and help create wildlife habitat.
The trees have been grown on in the FOTB ‘Community Tree Nursery’ for planting in the Byes and wider Sid Valley.
Volunteers planted the following:
7 x Black Dabinett a Cider Apple from Somerset
1 x Captain Broad one of the best old Cider apples from Cornwall
3 x Michelin a Cider apple from Normandy
3 x Sops in Wine a Cider & Eater old English variety
1 x Morgan sweet a Cider Apple from Somerset
1 x Killerton Sharp a Cider apple from Devon
7 x Silver Birch
If you would like to join in some tree planting we will be planting again next Saturday, just come along and meet in the community Orchard or phone Kati on 07817 041239 to arrange.
Thanks to Dave and Debbie who travelled up from Torbay to join FOTB volunteers today.
