Shedfield Common tree planting 2020
In November, the Friends of Shedfield Common planted several hundred little trees along the boundary of Shedfield Common behind the B2177 lay-by. The mix of trees, all native and suited to the south of England, will provide food and habitats for wildlife, as well as colour and interest. Over time, they will absorb greenhouse gases, and help block noise, pollution and visual intrusion from the main road. They include oak, hazel, blackthorn, hawthorn, crab apple, silver and downy birch, dog rose, rowan, goat willow and wild cherry. The Friends meet at 10am at the lay-by on the third Sunday of every month for a morning of enjoyable exercise improving the Common for residents and wildlife.
We would welcome volunteers so please contact email@example.com or ring 01329 830060 and one of the councillors will get back to you.
