Our tree planting

With the Tree Musketeers, we planted sixteen new trees over the winter of 2020/21 in North and South Millfields including a poplar, cherry, hybrid oak, Indian chestnut, cedar, alnus glutinosa, Japanese Rowan, native black poplar, thuja plicata, stone pines, and crataegus persimilis ‘prunifolia’.

In the winter of 2021/22 two memorial trees, a white beam and a spindle, were planted in the corner of South Millfields opposite Millfields Cafe.

Also planted in South Millfields were two more Pride of India (Koelreuteria) and a silverbell tree (Halesia Carolina).

From the spring to late summer we keep our newly planted trees healthy with weekly watering sessions.

Last autumn we completed work on the South Millfields orchard trees: weeding, mulching, and replacing guards and stakes.

In February 2022 we planted whips and baby trees in the space behind the electricity sub-station which was being returned to the park.
