First Tree Planting Event held by Tree Planting Partnership
Baildon Tree Partnership has held its first tree planting event. 25 saplings were planted alongside the River Aire near Higher Coach Road in Baildon. At least 40 volunteers came along to help and after a tree planting demonstration everyone got involved and the trees were quickly planted . The trees were purchased from Beardsworths nursery in Cleckheaton and paid for by Baildon Town Council. Once the trees were planted, wood chip provided by Bradford Council was applied as a mulch for each tree.
Everyone was pleased to help out and to see the trees in the ground. This year's planting will complement the trees that were planted alongside the nature trail last year.
The next tree planting event is planned for the 26th and 29th of February when the group will be planting trees on the field at the bottom of Shipley Glen tramway.
A big thank you is due to all the volunteers. Without them this event would not have taken place.
