Westbury Lions Plant 700 Trees for Queens Canopy
WESTBURY Lions planted 700 trees at the White Horse Country Park on Saturday 3rd December and Sunday 4th December, with local people turning out in force to help!
Planting times were during 9am to 3pm.
Our green fingered director of planting, Mike Pearce, said, “We had plenty of trees that needed planting.
Each day we planted different types: on Saturday we planted the whips (which was far easier for children to help with), and on Sunday we planted the larger trees.
“Hopefully people will be able to come here in years to come to reflect on the Queen’s service and this can help to serve as a reminder of her efforts. ”
The trees are all native species and forms a part of the ‘Queens Green Canopy’ project, an initiative set up during the Queens Platinum Jubilee to increase and protect the native tree cover in the UK.
