A donation of 3000 mesh guards by Green-tech, has provided a welcome boost to the Bearstead Woodland Trust in support of their hedge planting days in November.
Bearsted Woodland’s tree planting days provide essential maintenance and development to the woodland and also bring the local community together to invest their time in the area. The donation of the tree mesh guards by Green-tech the national landscaping supplier ensured the best start in life for the whips that were planted.
195 volunteers from the Bearsted and Thurnham areas turned out to assist with phase one of the project planting 3000 whips including Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel and Holly. Phase one of the planting covered a 600m length of pathway with 560 man hours clocked up preparing the site for planting. The whole project included jobs such as fence repairs, digging trenches, installing a power substation and new gate,s even before the volunteers could move in with their forks and spades to help break up the soil and remove roots and debris.
Peter Willson, Life President and Trustee of Bearsted Woodland commented:
‘We are a completely independent organisation run at no cost to the public purse and operating 365 days a year protecting the open space for Bearsted and the surrounding villages. The generous donation of 3000 mesh guards by Green-tech helped our project get off the ground with minimal outlay and disruption it also ensured our plantings received the best possible start.’
Rachel Kay Managing Director of Green-tech added:
‘Green-tech is delighted to be supporting the Bearsted Woodland Trust with its hugely popular planting days. Our business is built on the development and welfare of trees and shrubs and it is only right we should contribute to the woodland’s efforts. We are proud to say that we work with many Woodland Trusts across the UK supporting their day to day and project needs to help the preservation of woodlands.’
