Tree Planting

Bolton

We plant in January – February within various suitable locations across the North East and work in small teams to achieve the planting targets based on planting requirements and the scale of the planting operations. 

Prior to any planting we have already surveyed the area, and have created woodland management plans using forestry England templates  in regard to our planting aims and will only aim to plant tree species that are already thriving in the localized area already and not introduce new species unless the local habitats will benefit and not hinder, a vast majority of our trees are provided by the woodland trust however we also receive donations per sale from a number of businesses or receive tree orders directly through them.

 

Using Auger drill bits and a handheld drill to drill holes where stake we will be carrying bare-rooted trees and putting them in the holes and then going back around filling holes back in and putting in our tree guards to allow the trees to survive while young is essentially how things get done with a little routine.

Twice a year check we will check our trees for signs of pests or damage and report the condition of said trees to our team we use the app “what 3 words” to understand where our specific trees are
