The Trust has decided to continue with our Tree Planting activities this weekend. Below is an update regarding how it will work:  

  • There will be no desk at the Hive and so you will not be able to buy trees on the day
  • Please meet at the planting location near Haugh Farm
  • You can find a map of the planting location below or download directions here.
  • All planting volunteers – please wear sturdy footwear with good grips and gloves
  • Wear weather-appropriate clothes
  • Please bring your own spade, snacks and drinks
  • Please do not share equipment outwith families
  • The main volunteers will be the only ones hitting in stakes
  • Please avoid groups of over 5 and aim to stay more than 2 metres away from non-family members
  • PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND if you have any illness, or have been ill or returned from holiday in the last 7 days
