If you're looking for a gift with a difference for your climate conscious chum or if you'd prefer to donate to charity instead of writing and sending out cards then look no further, friends! The Isle of Man Woodland Trust Christmas 2020 designs have arrived!

Once you've chosen from the templates below - email iomwtmembers@gmail.com telling us who the gift is to and from. You can pay with PayPal or by bank transfer and we'll email your customised certificate back to you ready to print, email or share to social media.

Each new tree costs the trust £3 which includes the sapling, cane, stake and protective tubing. So a £15 donation would fund 5 trees, £30 would enable us to plant 10 and so on.

Just for fun - can you spot the Christmas film reference in each template? ~IOMWT

~Thank you to all our helpers💚

Yesterday at Glen Auldyn a terrific bunch of volunteers planted 250 hazel and oak saplings in little more than two hours.

The area is a former horse paddock which has been naturally wooded by many ash, which had grown to several meters height. Unfortunately ash dieback killed all of the ash and suitable native replacement tree species aren't close by so some helping hands were needed.

Fewer pictures than usual but we make up for that at our next events.

Our next two plantings are:

Sunday 29th of November from 10.30 @Hampton Court, Quine's Hill (we planted there in 2018 and 2019)

Sunday 6th of December from 10.30 @Glen Auldyn, Wildwood House (same like yesterday's)

#Brilliant 🌳

🌳🐞🌿🌲
This Sunday (22.11.2020) from 10.30 am we are going to plant at Glen Auldyn, southwest of Ramsey. The weather forecast looks much more promising than last Sundays.

Difficulty will be intermediate - while most people should easily manage to plant at the site, children and elderly people might struggle due to a slope and steepish access track. 
🚗🚌🚲
Parking is available in the driveway. Please park close together to make best use of the space. Our flag usually points out the parking area and there will be a sign around to show the way to the planting site.
A map is attached underneath. For navigation you can use the following link. https://goo.gl/maps/39e4U2VvX1UdgTdB9
☕️🥤🧁☕️
The plantings tend to last for two or three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including shoes. If you can bring garden gloves, a flask of hot water and a cup for coffee.Image attachment
