West Berkshire Council has granted us permission to add 60 more deciduous native trees to Goldwell Park and Stroud Green in Newbury. Our plan is to fill in some of the empty spaces in these areas and enhance the hedge in the Lost Field in Hamstead Marshall.
To ensure the saplings have the best chance of thriving, we will only be planting those that are at least 0.5 meters tall. Please provide your contact information along with the sapling's species and height (measured from the top of the pot in centimetres) in the sapling registration form.
If you're uncertain about the species, you can use a free plant identification app like PlantNet. If you have more than three saplings, please complete an additional form. Thank you.
Please note that we can only plant identified species that are deciduous and native to the UK.
We hope you will be able to join us to plant your saplings in community planting events on Sunday 5 November in Goldwell Park, and Sunday 12 November in Stroud Green. We will also be planting some of the hedgerow species in our site
in Hamstead Marshall on 3 December. Planting dates may shift, depending on weather conditions – we will let you know via our FaceBook group.
