Thanks for sharing πŸ˜€

These are gorgeous! Thank you so much x

We’re passionate about looking after the environment, and we’re super excited to be working with Isle of Man Woodland Trust on the #PlantItForward campaign, which aims to increase native tree planting in the Isle of Man.

We know there are many Island-based businesses that are looking for a way to contribute to positive environmental action and help preserve the Island’s biodiversity for future generations to come. So whether it’s funding just a few trees as a one-off or making it a regular part of your CSR activities, we’d love for you to get involved.

The cost for a new sapling is only around Β£3, so even the smallest donations can make a big impact. For more information on Plant It Forward and how you can help rewild the Isle of Man, go to woodlandtrust.im/plantitforward/

*** Midweek tree planting ***

Wednesday 3rd of March 10.30 am
Difficulty: medium

Following Sundays cancellation and the end of the planting season in April approaching fast, we have to squeeze in a midweek session.  There are about 100 trees looking for a new home in manx soil  which is ideal for a small group of volunteers.
πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈπŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦
Please try to be on time as a lift with a 4x4 to the site is involved and it is hard to find it alone. We are going to wait for around 10 minutes in case people are a bit late. Just in case our chairmans mobile number is 439959.

If you want to walk to the site, there is a small stream to cross which is best in a pair of wellington boots or by taking shoes and socks off to keep feet dry.
β›…οΈπŸƒ
The weather forecast promises a dry day with up to 8 degree celsius. 
β˜•οΈπŸͺ
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 sturdy shoes. If you can bring gardening gloves and a mug for coffee/tea along it would be a help but we can also provide them for you.
πŸš—πŸš™πŸš²
Directions: From the A3 at Cronk-Y-Voddy take the road for Little London. Then, before a dip down, take the first road on the right, which goes to Rhenass Farm. There are signs for Crosby Footpath and Ponytrekking. Park just after turning into the road on the left hand side, so that other cars can get through.

Calling all tree planters! Well be planting this Sunday at Eairy Moar Farm, overlooking Glen Helen. We planted 1068 native saplings there last year, including the sessile oak in the photo. Its a great spot with, on a clear day, lovely views of the Mountains of Mourne. 
Did you know that Glen Helen like so many of the islands glens was actually planted during the Victorian era? It contains sequoia, thuja, spruces, Douglas fir, sycamore, and masses of rhododendron. Heres a question for you, what do all these species have in common? 
Thats right they arent native species! So come along and do your bit for the islands biodiversity and lets get some native trees in among all the arboreal comeovers! Plus you get cake.
