Tree Planting Day – February 16th in Cutteslowe Park

In November LCON planted 200 trees and shrubs in Cutteslowe Park. It went so well that we are doing it again on February 16th, hopefully with even more trees and people, and in cooperation with the City Parks Dept. No experience needed! Watch this space for more information.

LCON Chair Alison Hill said: ‘Tree planting is one of the most satisfying things anyone can do to help our environment. It makes a real and lasting impact. Some of the trees we planted seven years ago are now fifteen feet high or more. Just last week the Government’s Committee on Climate Change talked about the need for the rate of tree planting to double by 2020. This matters locally and globally’.
