Tree Planting at Mountsfield Park 11.00am, Sunday 4th December 2016

Mountsfield Park-November-2016

Mountsfield Park  November 2016

Another opportunity to plant trees generously donated by the  Woodland Trust and ‘OVO / TCV I Dig‘ trees  at Mountsfield  Park – from 11.00am, Sunday 4th December 2016. Meet at Mountsfield Park community garden. Many thanks to the Woodland Trust and OVO / TCV I Dig trees from Friends of Mountsfield Park for donating trees to be planted at Mountsfield Park. All welcome!

The donated trees will:

  • make Mountsfield Park more beautiful,
  • provide excellent additional native species habitat for wildlife,
  • make the park greener around the edges, so that visitors to the park are less aware of the buildings and roads that surround the park,
  • make the ground more permeable to reduce the accumulation of surface water during heavy rainfall,
  • absorb carbon, some pollutants and dust from the air,
  • establishing new native tree planting to mitigate ash die-back disease.

Please email mountsfieldpark@gmail.com for more information.
