Grindleford Tree Planting Update

Grindleford tree planting group continues to meet fortnightly on Zoom and welcomes new people .The aim is to bring community members and groups together to increase the number of native species of trees and hedges in the village – hopefully at least one tree for every Grindleford resident.

Together we can help to tackle the Climate Crisis, increase biodiversity and increase our awareness of native trees, what to plant where and how to look after our trees in the long term.

Recently, we have been contacted by the Conservation Manager from the Peak District National Park who is offering us broadleaf tree species for the creation of new woodland areas within Grindleford. This offer comes at no financial cost and she is willing to provide advice and support.

We also have offers from Community tree providers, such as The Woodland Trust, who will give trees for planting on publicly accessible areas.

If you or someone you know would like to create new woodland or hedgerows on land within the Parish of Grindleford, whether publicly accessible or not, please get in touch. We may be able to help you source trees, advice, grants and help with planting.
