Tree planting day and 9 field officers from the Woodland Trust turned up at about 10.30am on a beautiful frosty winter's day. Fortunately the ground was not too frozen so planting could go ahead. (Volunteers can stand down now.)
With so many people who knew what they were doing, plus us, things moved on a pace and by about 3.30pm (with a break for lunch of course) there were 600 trees in the back field.
There is a mix of trees and shrubby stuff planted in a fairly random pattern with open areas in between so in time it should mature into a really attractive wood.
