Despite his name on the article, the archievements of the Isle of Man Woodland Trust are the result of a continuous team effort. The many generous volunteers at our planting- and tree caretaking sessions, our directors handling the back office and the charitable donors have all made the planting of more than 26,000 trees possible.

We look forward to our next planting season starting in October this year.Image attachment

International House, offices on Victoria rd.... Lovely tree...

We have a lovely old chestnut tree in the garden of my family home . Been there since before the house was built so at least since the late sixties.

Victoria road

It’s a beauty

That’s Victoria Road. But I’ve never noticed it before 😬

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.

Trees are very important role in our ecosystem animals live there.

Good day my friend do you have more available seeds of oak.downy bitch.cedar .pine trees .I want to planting here in my place. I love forestry too .

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
