Join a Forest for Peterborough tree planting day to benefit local wildlife

Natural Environment Volunteering
This January, head to Grange Farm in Wittering (PE8 6NR) to help plant trees for Forest for Peterborough. Discover how, by planting specific varieties of trees, you can encourage wildlife at the volunteer tree planting day on Saturday 23rd January.

“Tree habitats offer a multitude of benefits to local wildlife,” explains Project Officer Simon Belham. “They provide food, shelter and sites for nesting. By increasing tree coverage in the city and surrounding areas we are helping to support and encourage wildlife.”

Launched by the independent charity Peterborough Environment City Trust in 2010, Forest for Peterborough is an exciting project to plant over 180,000 trees in and around the city and surrounding countryside by 2030. The aim is to plant one tree for every person living in the city.

This free event is drop-in from 11.30am-4pm, but please bear in mind that the day will be finished when all trees are planted, so it is recommended that you arrive early! Please bring your own lunch. Register your attendance on 07715 372432 or via email at [email protected]

Forest for Peterborough is grateful for the support of the Mick George Community Fund. For more information about the project and how you can get involved, please visit the website at www.pect.org.uk.
