A gift of little oaks
Earlier this year, the Green Light Trust advised all woodland groups that the Dedham Vale Project had Surplus Oak saplings to give away. After one or two phone calls, Richard Parmee delivered a very generous bundle of 100+ trees, fifty of which were planted by the school, before the dry weather set in.
The rest are heeled in and doing very well at the edge of our veggie patch and will be included in our last planting session in November.
Thank you GLT for sending us details of this offer and a special thanks to Richard for delivering the trees ~~ the elms on the way into Elmsett from Ipswich, look great with their new growth of leaves.
