Well, we have just planted 20 more trees (oak, hazel, holly and hawthorn) in Oxhay meadow to complete GTPG Project 4 in collaboration with The National Trust.We planted the trees sparsely so that they have the opportunity to grow to maturity. We learned how to construct deer proof cages.The result looks great.Please do have a wander up to see it. Go up the track past Padley Chapel until you reach the 5 grindstones on the right. Turn right up a track there into the next field.Please contact me if you know of any land where we may be welcome to plant more trees!
We will be doing some maintenance work on Project 1 soon because a few of the trees have been a bit pushed over from the snow last week. Let me know if you would like to join us.
The Redwings and Fieldfares are enjoying the Hawthorn and Holly berries.Stay warm,
Grindleford Tree Planting Group, GTPG
