Would love to see more oak trees. I know they’re not native.

Is The Woodland Trust interested in planting the odd tree in a private garden?

You may be able to see seven kingdoms from the top of Snaefell but you won't see seven native, Manx trees. It's a tragedy!

All farmers should be integrating trees fully within their systems. Trees dramatically improve water management, animal health and welfare, and soil health and productivity. The cheapest, most straightforward way to boost farm health and productivity - and of course permanent woodland also sequesters carbon. Massive win:win for everyone.

On Sunday, a small group of us braved the miserable weather to check up on our Sulby Glen memorial site. Despite even our best waterproofs seeming insufficient (sailing gear might have been better!) we proceeded nonetheless with the site assessment, taking the opportunity to pull out some brambles and picking up some plastic litter.

It was great to see that people have cared for some of the trees on the site, putting ornaments and signs around them.
The massive fences around the trees for protection against livestock are thankfully not needed at our new site in Centenary Park, Onchan Birch Hill.

Afterwards we went up to the Ramsey hairpin to get inspired by Ramsey Forest project of the Manx Wildlife Trust. It was excellent to see that the mono-culture was disrupted with native tree plantings and we look forward to seeing the results of the linked up work.

Their facilities to get children to play in the woods were outstanding and we appreciated the hundreds of working hours that gone into it.

Our volunteer working party wont be up in Centenary Park this Sunday because of a woodland site visit. Have a nice weekend, it will come around slowly but surely!

Its been an interesting couple of weeks since we first posted about natural burials in the Isle of Man.  There seems to be a great deal of people in the island who would like this to be an option readily available to everyone here and yet - it just isnt.

Natural and woodland burials are widely available right now across the water in Englands green and pleasant land.   So why not here in our own dear Ellan Vannin?  

If this is an option that you would like to be available to you and your loved ones, we urge you to talk to your MHKs, your local commissioners, your religious leaders, your friends and your family.  Let them know that this is what you want and that there is a real need for a natural burial ground in the Isle of Man.  

Please feel free to share this image (or tag yourself in it if you feel strongly enough) and to message us with any questions.  We dont have many answers right now, but hopefully that will change as more and more people talk about natural burials in the Isle of Man.

Jedoonee maynrey!
Happy Sunday!

I think the Cathedral were looking into this as an option so may be worth talking to the Dean?

I would have gone for this option, only I am already signed up for and paid for a cremation.

I want to be scattered over Douglas. Also I don't want to be cremated.

When I made my will about 10 yrs ago I put down to have a woodland burial if not that to give my body to medical science and was told neither of them was a feasible option. So I will certainly talk to my MHK.
