*** Tree planting this Sunday from 10.30 am***
Date & Time: Sunday 5th February, 10.30 am
Difficulty: Challenging - planting up steep slope, stones
Weather: dry, sunny spells, 8Β°C
Location: Sulby Glen, north of Tholt-y-will
πŸ“†βœοΈ
First timer or experienced, single persons or small groups, you can just rock up without prior contact. We are going to show newcomers our method of planting trees. It is okay if you come a bit late or need to leave early.
β˜€οΈπŸŒ„
The site features fantastic views over the hills of Sulby Glen. A lovely little waterfall is just next to the site. The water stream has to be crossed by balancing over a wooden board. We have planted multiple times on the site over the years and it is a lovely opportunity to see how the trees have developed.
πŸ¦‹πŸ›πŸͺ±πŸ
Our aim for this event is to plant around 250 trees. The species are mostly native to the island, fantastic for wildlife. Oak, hazel, alder, birch, and wild cherry are among them.
β±β˜•οΈπŸ«–πŸ₯Ύ
The plantings tend to last for two to three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. Warm clothing that can get some dirt on it and sturdy shoes are recommended - better bring too many layers of clothing than too few! We always have some spare gardening gloves.
πŸš—πŸšŒ
As usual we recommend ride sharing, helps with directions and creates joy. Parking is best along the road opposite the site, where a big flag is put in the ground as an indicator. There is also an overspill car park down the slope.

Our aim for this event is to plant around 300 trees. The species are mostly native to the island, fantastic for wildlife. Oak, hazel, alder, birch, and wild cherry are among them.

As usual we recommend ride sharing, helps with directions and creates joy. Coming from the south, at Cronk-y-Voddy turn left onto Ballabrooie Road. After 750m at the next big four-way-crossing turn right onto Staarvey Road. The third track to the left (after 1,3km) is Stockfield Road - a Woodland Trust flag or sign should be visible here. 400m up on the left is the the planting site The Barn. 
No access to Stockfield Road from the Coast Road
