If you have land in the Colne Valley and want some trees, talk to us.

Last winter we planted over 5000 trees!

Happy Birthday!

Enjoying sunshine and parkin.
Almost forgot, but this is the 10th Anniversary of the start of this blog!

Back to Wessenden to plant 150 Oak, 30 Hazel, and 15 Birch.

We were: myself, Ben, Geoff, Philip, new person Neil, Cath, Lee, Jess and Lizzie the dog, Tanya, Stephen, Peter, Dave and Susan.

Cake was parkin. Weather was unseasonably mild and sunny.

Little people making a big difference.

This morning we were at Wessenden again, and as you can see, from the photo, there is good reason for us to be there week after week. A monumental task for a small but dedicated crew.

We planted a further 150 Oak and 30 Hazel

We were: myself, Philip, Dave, Geoff, Adrian, Cath, Tanya, Hap, Peter, Stephen, Andrew, Adam, Ben and Solo the dog.

Unfortunately the morning was overshadowed by Solo being taken suddenly very ill at the end of the session. Ben and I had to leave abruptly to get him to a vet. Very sadly, there was nothing that could be done for him.

Solo will be sorely missed by everyone.

Just a mock up - not a real thing, yet.

Big decision

Peter chooses carefully.
Today we were back at Wessenden, planting 150 Sessile Oak and 30 Hazel.

We were: myself, Andrew, Dave, Ben and Solo the dog, Dianne and Lizzie the dog, Jess, Lee, Hap, Steve, Adrian, Peter, Sue, and Geoff.

Cake was coconut and cherry sponge.
