Doro, Rowan and Mark out preparing the ground for planting the tree seedlings

A group of Aline Community Woodland volunteers gathered in early December to start planting some of the 420 tree seedlings we were given by The Woodland Trust. The group worked up on a cleared area beside the path on the west side of the woodland, which is also part of the Hebridean Way.

The volunteers planted a mix of trees including Alder, Downey Birch, Grey Willow, Eared Willow, Aspen, hazel and hawthorn. Rob Tai, one of our volunteers has organised a second planting day on Thursday 10th December meeting in the main car park at 10am. If you are interested in taking part send us a message here, find us on Facebook and Instagram too.
