Tree Planting and Ivy Cutting
We have two events coming up shortly that we hope you will be able to help with; TREE PLANTING and IVY-CUTTING
SATURDAY 25TH MARCH, TREE PLANTING
Meet at the Village Hall 10.00.
The Woodland Trust has kindly given Hilton 130 small trees between 30 and 40 cms high (12 – 15 inches). These will be used to act as nurse trees and will be interplanted with the trees established in December 2021 in the corner of The Green near the gate to The Wilderness and in the copse established in the north-eastern corner of The Wilderness about 5 years ago. If you are able to bring your own garden fork, or spade, or both, that would be very helpful.
BETWEEN SATURDAY 1ST AND SUNDAY 9TH APRIL, IVY-CUTTING
We have established a successful annual routine of cutting some of the ivy that is threatening our trees in the village. In discussion with you, our tree officer will ask you to cut (but not remove) the ivy in a small area of trees/bushes. Anyone with secateurs, or loppers, or a pruning saw should be able to help.
If you are able to help with either or both of the above could you please contact our tree officer Ian Stott.

We are exceptionally grateful for your help.
