|Dianne mulch matting, dogs watching.|
This week we were up above Marsden, planting a further 90 Alder and 90 Goat Willow in Neil and Sarah's field. There was a special aspect to this as Neil and Sarah are such diligent landowners that they mulch mat all their trees. This takes a quite a lot more work, but helps ensure vigorous growth from the get go.
We were: myself, Hap, Geoff, Lesley, Robert, Ben the younger, Ben the elder, Jess, Dianne and Lizzie the dog, Duncan and Harvey the dog, Neil and Sarah, Peter W., and Stephen O., Andrew and John. Plus special guests, Chloe and Julian, who were there in order to write an article about us for the Huddersfield Examiner.
Cake was apricot and walnut.
We also left 105 Beech and 105 Dogwood for Sarah and Neil to plant, at their leisure!
