Tree Planting

It’s been a busy winter planting trees on The Hook Nature Reserve. Thanks to the many volunteers – of all ages – who have turned out to help. We now have an avenue of 55 native trees along the riverside path, a mix of oak, alder, rowan, lime, cherry and silver birch. This will create a green corridor along the River Trent.

We’ve also added silver birch and oak to the woodland to the east of the Holme Grove path. This is now a great area for nesting birds, especially since we’ve asked people to leave this area undisturbed and instead to use the paths at either end.

Our working parties are the first Sunday of the month, meet 2pm at the Mona Road entrance.
