Tree Planting Mission Open To Volunteers

Volunteers are invited to come and help plant over 2,400 trees as part of a new woodland in Clacton.

Tendring District Council (TDC) and Trees for Cities have finalised plans for the second phase of planting at Rush Green Recreation Ground.

To coincide with National Tree Week 2019, planting of the remaining trees will take place from 10am on Saturday, 30 November, and members of the public and community groups are invited to take part.

Michael Talbot, TDC Cabinet Member for Environment, encouraged as many people as possible to come along.

“Trees to be planted include hawthorn, oak, wild cherry, field maple and mountain ash as these should survive for 100 years, and the trees will be sourced from UK nurseries to remove the risk of importing pests and diseases,” Cllr Talbot said. “The area to be planted forms part of the Rush Green Recreation Ground which used to be a rubbish tip, and the settlement of the area has made it unusable for sports pitches.”

 

Community groups, and TDC staff teams, are also being invited to take on a section of the woodland for them to manage over the first few years as the trees take root.

 

Alan Coley, Chairman of TDC’s cross-party working party on Climate Change, added his support for the event.

“Having declared a Climate Emergency and set an ambitious target of being carbon neutral by 2030, anything we can do to help our environment and offset our emissions has to be a good thing,” Cllr Coley said.   “This new woodland will help to create a green lung for Clacton, as well as an open space for people and wildlife to enjoy. If you want to get involved then please come along.”

 

People attending the planting are advised to wear suitable clothing and footwear. Tools and refreshments will be provided. A back-up date in January has been scheduled should the weather be too bad to allow planting on 30 November.

 

Trees for Cities is the only charity working nationally across the UK to improve lives by planting trees in cities. They get stuck in with local communities to cultivate lasting change in their neighbourhoods – whether it’s revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or getting people excited about growing, foraging and eating healthy food. As the planting event takes place in National Tree Week, Trees for Cities encourages everyone to come out and plant trees for future generations to enjoy. #GenerationTree    It is supporting TDC with the Rush Green Recreation Ground scheme, for which 2,500 trees were planted earlier this year.   If you are interested and able to assist with planting please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
