Valentines TLC for the trees at White Fen

This valentines the trees at White Fen got some extra care and attention. 

Planted from 2010-2014 there are now over 6000 saplings at the Lode and Long Meadow Community woodland on White Fen. To give them the best chance of survival our team of volunteers spent the  morning straightening their canes, replacing their guards and clearing ants nest out from the old guards. A full on tree spa treatment!

The morning ended with a campfire lunch and marshmallows for the hard workers!
