National Tree Week – come along and plant some trees!

We are pleased to announce that there will be two community tree planting days in North Hinksey and Botley during Tree Week, which runs from Nov. 26 – Dec. 6.  The local dates are likely to be Sat. Dec. 5 and Sun. Dec. 6 and the sites are at Oxford Rugby Club (past the Fishes pub in North Hinksey Lane) and at Wytham View, Tilbury Fields.  Exact times are being finalised – watch this space for updates.

Everyone is welcome – we’ll aim to plant around 500 trees. These will be small ‘whips’ – young trees about 1m tall.   If you’ve not done this before, it’s easy and satisfying and we’ll give full guidance. Due to the Covid-19 issues, we will be ensuring that planting is done in a ‘socially distanced’ and safe manner. We will ask people to bring  their own spades and gloves rather than share them.   We are grateful to the Rugby Club for their support. 

If you’ve got ideas on other land where tree planting could take place in December or in the spring please do get in touch – email: environment@northhinksey-pc.gov.uk
