Volunteer Group Diary

 

 

6 February 2020

It was a beautiful, crisp day in the Arboretum and there were contractors with us today who removed some diseased and damaged trees. We also put some tree guards around the newly planted Gingko trees (also known as the maidenhair tree)

 

 

 

9 January 2020

It is the start of a new year and we had a list of jobs to do so the team split up around the Arboretum. Quite a few enclosures around the trees were taken down. Once the trees are large enough the netting is removed as, otherwise, weeds and long grass clog them up. Fallen branches were collected for the fire. A lot of small holly and bramble was pulled up. Trees were checked for re-labelling in the future and signs were washed.
