Green fingers of all ages are welcome at a community tree planting day next week.
The government’s Forestry Commission has organised the session on Thursday, February 21, to help extend an area in Bonnetts Wood, Upminster. The site was previously part of a land fill and has been restored by the Forestry Commission and site owners Ingrebourne Valley Limited.
No experience or tools are required – just bring warm clothes and wellies. You can come at any time and will be shown how to plant a tree.
There will be hot drinks and toilets on site.
Parking is available on-site via Gerpins Lane. The entrance to the site is about 20 metres beyond the recycling centre.
For more information call the community ranger on 01708 642964 or visit forestry.gov.uk/thameschase.
