New trees planted in WyrePublished Wednesday, 21 December 2016
A variety of new trees are being planted around the borough with the help of Wyre's volunteers.
We are very pleased to have taken delivery earlier this week of 31 healthy new trees including Alder, Hornbeam, English Oak, Crab Apple, Rowan, Pink Flowering Cherry and an exotic Handkerchief tree which usually is native to China.
The new trees are currently being planted by our parks teams, countryside rangers and volunteers at a number of open spaces throughout Wyre.
The species have been selected with the conditions of the planting sites in mind and with consideration of climate change, eventual tree size, form, landscape character, autumn colour and benefit to wildlife.
Ryan Arrell, Tree and Woodland Officer at Wyre Council, said: “It’s been rewarding to assist with the planting of new trees in open spaces throughout the borough. Spring will soon be here and with it the many benefits our new trees will bring. A big thank you to everyone involved in making this year’s tree planting a success”.
