2nd project tree planting activity at Knights Hill Wood

On Saturday 16th December 2017 Nature Vibezzz ran our 2nd tree planting activity at Knights Hill Wood. Unfortunately the yet again the weather wasn’t in our favour with it being a very cold day and rain for most of the session. But we still had some hardy local people turn up and help. We planted native species of shrubs and trees donated by the Woodland Trust including hazel, elder, blacktorn, hawthorn, crab apple, rowan & dog rose. This will create a mixed species wildlife hedge around the boundary of Knights Hill Wood. This native hedgerow will help protect the woodland from fly tipping and create a habitat beneficial for many native species creating more biodiversity.
