Tree planting scheme Southstoke near Bath February 2024

It’s not all about felling trees!  this week Tad and the team completed a new planting scheme on the edge of Bath.

The project was for 1.16ha (= 11600 (m2) with 1344 trees in 1.2m tubes.

The trees included mixed broadleaves including oak & beech, as well as field maple, wild service and hazel.

If the wild service tree isn’t as familiar to you as the others, then ” it’s a deciduous broadleaf which can reach 25m when mature.

(Sorbus torminalis) – the bark is brown and patterned with cracked, square plates, and the twigs are slender, shiny, grey-brown and straight”.

See the Woodland Trust website for more details
