Last planting cancelled!

As you have probably already guessed, our last planting scheduled for this Sunday is indeed cancelled. 

On the bright side of things, we already have planted 3010 trees this year, making it our best first half year ever. This follows our best half year in total in late 2019. 

We hope to get back into the green woodlands as soon as the crisis is over. Over the summer we hopefully will be taking care of some of our existing woodlands, depending on how long the situation goes on. From October we should plant trees again.

We hope that you stay mentally and physically strong in this challenging time - there is nothing more important than our health. This time might even provide an opportunity for reflection and personal development.

I hate to be the one to say it as you guys do d Good work but... social distancing 🀷‍♂️ help stop the spread

What a great day to plant treesπŸ‘πŸ’•πŸŒžπŸŒ±β˜Ί!

We are very sad to have learnt that our long time friend and former director of the Isle of Man Woodland Trust - Lawrence Rea - has passed away.  Lawrence was one of the warmest hearted humans we could have hoped to meet, a true environmentalist and as many would testify, a world class hugger.

Our sincere condolences and love are with his family and friends at this difficult time.  

Rest easy, Lawrence.  You were brilliant 🌳 ~IOMWT

Tree plantings are still going ahead on the next Sundays. Tree planting is an outdoor activity with usually at least two metres distance between persons.

We will have a bottle of hand sanitiser with us. Please wash your hands before you leave your house and after the planting event. 

If you have high temperature or a dry cough, please stay at home.

Sunday 22/03 from 10.30 am - Port Cornaa

This Sunday we will plant at our new site by beautiful Port Cornaa. We planted over 200 trees so far directly next to the beach in the sun last Sunday, which was a blast. We aspire to plant 500-600 trees in total. 

Due to the virus our attendance numbers might be lower with the same number of trees to go in so we need every healthy person.

The site is easy compared to our last plantings, the land is flat and mud free. A good number of pebbles are in the ground though.

βŒšοΈπŸ“² β˜•οΈπŸ§

The plantings tend to last two or so hours and there will be coffee and tea afterwards. We understand that some people have busy Sundays and need to leave earlier which is absolutely no problem – we welcome every person who takes part! Dont worry if you have never planted a tree in your life - we will show you how to do it!

🌳🌲🌿🌳

All you need to bring is suitable clothing including shoes, everything else will be provided. If you have gardening gloves bring them along but we can also provide them for you.

πŸš—πŸš²πŸšπŸ
A car park is available at the beach.

If you would like or can offer a lift, just write a comment below - savings petrol and carbon emissions.

If you have trouble finding the way or some other urgent messages, please call or message Falk 439959.

350 saplings were planted in a very impressive hill battle, overcoming steep slopes and rocky underground formations. 1770 trees in total were planted on the sloc. With the sloc plantings finished this season, the next two Sundays we will be at Port Cornaa - a much easier planting close to the coast. ... See MoreSee Less

Sunday 08/03/2020 10.30 am - Rushen

β­οΈπŸš€β­οΈ

This Sunday we try to finish our planting at Rushen commissioners site with a whopping 350 trees to plant. After last Sundays 303 saplings, can we establish a new site record?

The Rushen parish commissioners have been one of the first local authorities to declare a climate emergency and now follow through on their pledge by reforesting some of their land holdings. Our aim is to plant more than 1,500 trees in total on the site. So far we have planted ~1423 saplings in five sessions. If we manage to plant 350 more, it will bring us up to 1773!

πŸŒ³πŸŒΏβ˜˜οΈπŸŒ²πŸ¦œπŸ¦”

Difficulty will be intermediate - while most people should manage to plant at the bottom of the site, children and elderly people might struggle.
The site is likely going to be wet after rain in the last days. As the bracken will grow high in the summer, it is important to clear the bracken roots away so that the trees are planted into clear soil.

πŸš—πŸšŒπŸš²

Parking is only available along the road but there should be enough room for a good number of vehicles.

If you would like a lift, let us know where you are coming from and we might be able to organise something.

The plantings tend to last for two to three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including shoes. Please take into consideration that the site might be wet after the rain in the last days. If you can bring gardening gloves, a flask of hot water and a cup for coffee/tea along it would be a help but we can also provide them for you.Image attachment
