GREENOCK Cut Volunteers Help With Tree Planting Scheme

GREENOCK Cut conservation volunteers planted saplings around the visitor centre and nature trail at Loch Thom as part of a countrywide initiative organised by The Woodland Trust.

Ten volunteers planted 30 trees including dog rose, hawthorn, hazel, crab apple and dogwood.

The trees are being planted to build up the local hedgerows that are vital for the local wildlife.

Seasonal ranger Kathleen McMillan said: “We had a great time planting our hedgerow trees and we can’t wait to see them grow in to a hedgerow for wildlife in the years to come. 

"Many thanks the Greenock Cut conservation volunteers who planted them and to Woodland Trust Scotland for the free trees.”

More than half a million native trees from the Alba nursery outside Edinburgh have been distributed throughout the UK this month –- including 54,330 to Scottish schools and community groups. 

This is Woodland Trust’s single biggest distribution of free trees. The project has been done with support from Sainsbury’s, IKEA FAMILY, players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Yorkshire Tea.
