Trees and Hedges

During November and December 2020, lower branches in Oak Avenue (14 years old) were trimmed  to raise the canopy.  The area will now have more air and light, which is healthier for the trees. 

BWT have planted so many yards of carefully mixed hedges, that they now have to be cut by a contractor.

During the winter of 2009/10 willows behind the roller bench were pollarded. They have regrown to form dense shrubby plants excellent for bird cover, and the resulting trees will live longer. 

The Oak Avenue and the Peoples Wood were planted in November 2004 when 200 woodland and 50 individual trees were sponsored, and planted by over 150 volunteers. 

Riders Wood in Moore Meadow was planted in the winter of 2016.
