Work To Plant 400 Trees In Shaftesbury Gets Underway

Yesterday, three volunteers from Shaftesbury Tree Group started planting 400 trees and over 900 hedging plants in various locations around our town.

Group member and forestry expert Robin Walter tells Alfred where these trees will be planted and how tree planting will become a wider community initiative once the pandemic restrictions are lifted.

Robin explains why the work needs to be undertaken now and can’t wait until groups can meet again.
