After much digging and sculpturing the heavy construction of the project is now complete, this marks the beginning of an exciting new phase, tree planting! Trees will be planted in a grid like formation at the bottom end of the site (see picture below). We have received over 800 trees from the Woodland Trust’s Diamond Jubilee initiative. The birch trees will be supported by charred oak posts, which will make a strikingly dramatic sight!
The lovely students at Maesteg Comprehensive School will be helping us to plant the trees at the end of November, but we are also inviting members of the community to participate, as the old saying goes, many hands make light work!
Join us to plant your own unique tree and help complete this spectacular new project. The event is open to all ages, so come along with your family and friends. Dates of the tree planting have not been finalised yet, but once they are I will update this blog and provide more information.
