Tree planting in the Water Meadows

Wednesday 1st March, meeting in the Crankles 9.30am to 12 noon

We have a number of elms to plant in No Mans Meadow and along the Lark banks. These are European White Elms which hopefully will replace the job done by native English elms which don’t get to maturity anymore. The White Letter Hairstreak butterfly is now a rare sight as a result of the devastation caused by Dutch Elm disease on native elm. However the beetle that causes the disease seems unable to wreak the same havoc on European White elms. This work party is taking place on a Wednesday to be able to take advantage of Borough staff on hand.
