Community Planting of 842 Trees & Shrubs

Digboi Bamff hosted a community tree planting event over the weekend of 21/22 November 2020, organised by Iain Moss of The Woodland Trust, and Cathy Scott and Kevin Coe from Alyth Development Trust.

http://vboda7.org/calendar?yr=2019 Around 60 people in time slots through the weekend came to volunteer, mostly from local towns and villages. 842 trees and shrubs were planted: oak, rowan, hazel, hawthorn, blackthorn, silver birch, dog rose and crab apple (plus two kind gifts – a child of the Fortingall Yew and a cutting from the Carnoustie Dibble Tree).
Most were planted in the tree enclosures constructed earlier this year from where they can become a seed source for the surrounding ground. The fields containing these will be released from mainstream agriculture in December 2020.
