Volunteers Plant 900 Trees!
The threat of Storm Denis didn’t deter volunteers from helping to plant 900 trees at Allington Open Space during a wet and windy week in February.
The Go Green Go Wild project to increase tree coverage, improve habitats and help tackle climate change was a great success and the volunteers made light work of planting the 900 small whips, which in time will become a nature rich habitat.
Medway Valley Countryside Partnership helped arrange the project and their volunteer TAG teams prepared the areas and got many of the trees in the ground. The task was then completed on Saturday 15th February by local residents and Councillors who planted the remaining 180 whips.
Over time the trees will develop into a small woodland, providing food, shelter and a breeding ground for our wildlife as well as help our environment.
Why not visit Allington Open Space in Castle Road and look out for a Wildflower Meadow coming this summer!
