Massive thanks to the 'hardy dozen' who turned out today and planted 285 trees in two hours at Sulby Glen. What a team! ~IOMWT ... See MoreSee Less

Well done!

Wow.

Thank you to everyone who turned up and planted these past 2 weeks - you are all legends!

Well done

Yes I'd like to second that as 1st thing this morning I thought there'd be very few turning up what with the weather but as it happened we had more than a dozen, more like TWO dozen and some of them where families with small children who'd not planted trees before, good for you doing your bit for the environment. Many thanks to Steve for calling the shots today & keeping it as a go despite the wet start & to Lydia for giving us a lift down. More pics to follow hopefully of the tree planting

Good morning! We’ve had a couple of messages about todays planting and whether or not it will go ahead. The weatherman says that this rain is due to clear up soon and our lot are en route to the site now. So chins up, wellies on and best feet forward, lovelies! We’ve got trees to plant! ...

Wish I had seen this sooner.

This Sunday the 26th of January from 10.30 am we will plant at Sulby Glen again. 275 trees will be put into good Manx soil.

This particular planting will be a bit more physically challenging than most of our events. While it will be suitable for most people, a slope and a small obstacle make it less suitable for young children, people suffering from injuries and elderly.

Dogs that are medium to big also might struggle accessing the site.

βŒšοΈπŸ“² β˜•οΈπŸ§

The plantings tend to last two or so and there will be coffee and tea afterwards. We understand that some people have busy Sundays and need to leave earlier which is absolutely no problem – we welcome every person who takes part! Dont worry if you have never planted a tree in your life - we will show you how to do it!

🌳🌲🌿🌳

All you need to bring is suitable clothing including shoes, everything else will be provided. If you have gardening gloves bring them along but we can also provide them for you.

πŸš—πŸš²πŸšπŸ
Parking is available in a little lane where the Woodland Trust signs and hopefully many other cars are.

If you would like a lift, let us know where you are coming from and we might be able to organise something.

If you have trouble finding the way or some other urgent messages, please call or message Phil 429615

275 trees were planted in Sulby Glen yesterday. Hazel, Birch, Oaks and pine were among the species planted.

It was splendid to see so many new people braving the January cold. Over 30 people made a fantastic team. What a start in the new year! πŸ’ͺ With so many helping hands it took us little more than two hours to get all the saplings planted, even though there were steep slopes in some places.

We will be back in the same spot next Sunday, 10.30 am. From Sunday the 2nd of February we will be down south in the parish of Rushen for multiple sessions as 1,500 trees will be planted there.

Amazing! I'm so hoping to get there one week πŸ™„, but Sunday mornings are a bit tricky. I will make it β€οΈπŸ‘

Some more photos. The slope was steep, but it made for some great views.

This place will be stunning in summer

We loved being a part of it. Keep up the good work. πŸ‘πŸ˜

Great to see lots of new faces xx

Well done to the hard workers.

**First tree planting of the new year this Sunday**

This Sunday the 19th of January from 10.30 am we will plant at Sulby Glen again. 250 trees will be put into good Manx soil.

The plantings tend to last two hours or so and there will be coffee and tea afterwards. We understand that some people have busy Sundays and need to leave earlier which is absolutely no problem – we welcome every person who takes part! Dont worry if you have never planted a tree in your life - we will show you how to do it!

🌳🌲🌿🌳
The planting should be easy on one part, challenging at another. Part of the site is fairly flat while another part is steeply sloped. It should be suitable for everyone who can manage a small obstacle.

All you need to bring is suitable clothing including shoes, everything else will be provided. If you have gardening gloves bring them along but we can also provide them for you.

Dogs are welcome but have to be kept on a leash.

Isle of Man Woodland Trust
Four thousand, nine hundred and fifty eight.

THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how many new trees the Isle of Man Woodland Trust planted in 2019.  Thats almost double any of our previous totals and were simultaneously delighted and eager to beat our own record in 2020.

Follow this page for news of our latest plantings and for details of how you can help, if youd like to.

Bright blessings!  ~IOMWT

Before the networks get jammed (does that still happen?), before youre flooded with well wishes for the new year and whilst were all still online, concentrating and (relatively) sober (albeit full of cheese and confused about what day of the week it is!) wed like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in 2019 and to wish you all the very best of everything in 2020.

If youre the resolution making type and youre resolving to help with the regeneration of our planet, the improvement of our island or getting some more quality time with your family next year then trust us when we say that you could do worse than helping us out by planting a tree or two.  Just keep an eye on this page for details of our plantings and turn up whenever you can.

If youre not the outdoorsy type but think your computer or admin skills could be of use to us out then please, get in touch.  Wed love to hear from you!
