Five Hundred Trees To Be Planted In Guernsey
A project by the Guernsey Men of the Trees will see five hundred trees planted in a field in Guernsey. Set to take place in January 2012, this project will transform a field in the Castel parish and bring new life to the area.
Some of the species set to be planted include English oak, hazel, common alder, walnut and lime. The area itself, which is part of the St Germain Nature Reserve, is set to be named “Sigma Wood” in honour of the local company Sigma Group, who have sponsored the project. An application for a commemorative stone on the site is also being considered at this time.
Children from the local Castel School are set to help to plant the trees.
This news comes in the same year in which the Queens Jubilee will take place, as well as the Jubilee Woods project which sets out to plant 6 million tree’s. You can learn more about this project by clicking here.
