Tree Care -Friends of Canley Green Spaces

Saturday 23 February 2019
Time: 10.30am-2.00pm
Places available: 15

Meeting Place: Costa Coffee by the Rootes Building

Seven years ago, Friends of Canley Green Spaces and Warwick Volunteers planted 420 trees that have now grown into a woodland. Volunteers will be revisiting the tree planting site in Park Wood, to cut away unwanted vegetation from around the trees. This will improve the appearance of the new woodland, giving the trees more light to ensure that they grow healthy.

Tools and gloves are provided. No experience is needed. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and strong shoes or boots that you don't mind getting a little muddy. Some of the vegetation is prickly, so wear old clothes that fully cover your arms, legs and ankles.

The activity will last for about 3.5 hours.
