Standard Bank planted 200 trees with us at Maughold a few days ago. 
The team even undertook its own quality control by making sure tubes were upright and hammering in the stakes to a certain depth. This way saplings get the best chances to flourish. πŸ’ͺ
Afterwards the energetic bunch removed hundreds of plastic sleeves from juvenile trees that were planted on the field margins.πŸ’š 🌳Image attachmentImage attachment+5Image attachment

Coming from the south along A3 Ballamodha Straight, just before South Barrule plantation turn left onto Corlea Road. Drive along Corlea Road for 1,9km and then turn left onto Glenmoar Road. At the crossroads at the end of the road turn right onto the Old Moaney.
Our signs and flags should be visible for the last 2km of the journey.

360 trees planted at Ballcosnahan Farm, Patrick last Sunday. We had about twenty volunteers, including a four-year old, a seven-year old, many middle aged and a few old hands🫢
While most people planted trees, some helped by taking photos, carrying supplies and providing refreshments. 
These were the species planted: scots pine, austrian pine, italian alder, native alder, rowan, whitebeam, sycamore, downy birch, wych elm, juniper, broom, oak, hazel, wild cherry, aspen, beech, hornbeam, wild pear and crab apple. We probably forgot oneπŸ˜‰
Next planting will be this Sunday at The Old Moaney, Corlea Road, Malew, IM9 3BAImage attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment
