This Sunday, 22nd of May, from 10.30 am we are going to remove spirals, tubes and stakes from trees planted at Ballamaddrell, just north of Ballabeg. It would be splendid if you come along to help us.
🌱+πŸ’š=🌳
We planted trees for many years there and many have grown to considerable size. We removed spirals & tubes from the biggest trees a few years ago but more have grown to the size now which allows us to take materials off. The attached picture shows trees planted around the year 2006.

DIRECTIONS: Coming from Douglas, take the airport road (A5) until Ballasalla. In Ballasalla at the first roundabout take the right hand exit. After 170 metres at the second roundabout take the left hand exit onto Bridge Road. Follow the major road for 3,5 km. When you come to a threeway-crossing, take the right and after 200 metres, in Ballabeg, go right onto the B42. After 150 metres, the B42 will split into two, take the right again.
Ballamaddrell/Grenaby studios will appear after 450 metres - there should be a Woodland Trust sign along the road. From Douglas it takes about 30 minutes to get to Ballamaddrell.
Two maps are attached. The following link can be used for mobile phone navigation: https://goo.gl/maps/UhLJHvesSfDH2J2d6
Parking: The Grenaby studios are part of Ballamaddrell. There are about a dozen easily accessible parking spaces at Grenaby studios. We always encourage ride sharing to not only to ease the parking demand but also to lower emissions.Image attachmentImage attachment

People are being encouraged to report diseased trees to help build a better picture of how they are affecting the Isle of Man's hedgerows, woodlands and forests.
Diseases, such as ash dieback (ADB), Phytophthora ramorum and Dutch elm disease are believed to have killed thousands of trees on the Island in the last 30 years.
While the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is closely monitoring the situation, such diseases are impossible to eradicate and very difficult and costly to control.
It is currently estimated that around 80% of the Island’s ash trees could be lost due to ADB and up to 20% of the commercial forests managed by DEFA will need to be felled and replanted as result of the Phytophthora ramorum infection.
This will have a significant impact on the Manx landscape and wildlife. To help the department is asking people to πŸ‘‡
πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Use the β€˜Tree Alert’ app to report tree health concerns
πŸ‘‰ treealert.forestresearch.gov.uk/
🌱 Only buy plants and trees from reputable nurseries
πŸ‚ Practice good biosecurity when visiting the countryside

Dear tree planters, 
πŸ’šThank you so much for your help over the planting season, which has been our most successful so far! 
🍞πŸ₯—πŸ₯On Sunday the 17th of April from 11 am we are going to have a social late breakfast at one of our sites called Centenary Park. If you have planted trees with us this season, you are hereby cordially invited to join us and welcome to bring a friend, pet or family members. Please RSVP if you are going to come by emailing isleofmanwoodlandtrust@gmail.com 
We are going to give people a tour through the park, explain what we have done and why. We have planted around 2,000 trees on the site over the last five years or so, there is a little celebration tree area and the start of a little orchard. There might also be a Wellington Boot throwing competition and for youngsters a chocolate Easter Egg Hunt πŸ˜ƒ.
We have a little gas BBQ for frying up eggs, sausages, courgettes and whatever else people want. It would be appreciated if you bring something for the breakfast (whatever you want, it usually works out!), we intend to throw everything in the middle to share. However it is not a must and we are going to bring plenty of spare food, tea, coffee etc
Directions to Centenary Park can be found on our website https://woodlandtrust.im/our-sites/

Pics from our last big tree planting this season πŸ“·

Around 40 volunteers planted more than 400 saplings on mothers' day. Many mothers had convinced their families that tree planting is the best way to spend time together: hats off to the ladies πŸŽ©πŸ§’πŸ‹οΈ‍♀️

Wonder what the fathers are going to do when their day comes.. 😜
