Thursday 3rd November, 10:30 – 12:30
Holly Barnes, our Community Forestry Development Officer will be at the planting of our new oak avenue!
The old Poplars near the skate park had become fragile and dangerous with the risk of large branches breaking off, particularly in high winds. Once the felling is complete they are being replaced with an avenue of English Oaks either side of the next path along towards the car park.
The Oaks will mature into majestic trees with rugged bark and large spreading crowns. They are native and are traditionally seen in the English Countryside. They are long lived and are important for insects and other wildlife.
The replacement of the old poplars with English Oaks is part of the “Old Playground Regeneration Programme” instigated and funded by FoMP from a Community Spaces grants programme and the Community Assembly and delivered in partnership with Sheffield City Council.
