We originally applied to the Forestry Commission for permission to plant some new trees in August — well the good news is that as of this week, everything is complete!

The 995 indigenous broadleaf trees that have gone in included 373 oak trees, 373 ash trees and a mixture of crabapple, spindle, hazel and alder buckthorn.

Of course, it’s going to be some time before the trees start coming through, and a good few years until they reach anything like normal size, but it’s good to know that at some point in the future there will be nearly 1000 new broadleaf trees around the nature reserve.
