Tree Planting Glen Chass 19/4/15

Three young helpersTree Planting at Glen Chass, near Port St. Mary at 11.00 a.m. on Sunday, 19th April 2015

We have been asked to plant a mixture of 200 trees across a hillside at Glen Chass, near Port St. Mary.  Although the hillside is fairly steep, paths have been strimmed for the planting, so the footing will be O.K. The mixture of trees will give blossom, berries and Autumn colour and provide a wonderful habitat for wildlife in future years.

We will be meeting at 11.00 a.m., and will have coffee, tea and cakes for everyone afterwards.  Please wear warm clothes and stout shoes or boots.  If you could bring stout garden gloves it would be a help, and we will have plenty of spades available.

DIRECTIONS for Sunday 19th April:

Take the A31 road from Port St. Mary towards The Calf.  About half a mile along the A31, just before The Howe, there is a public car park on your left.  We can park our cars there.  Walk along the road for about 50 yards, when you will find the Glen Chass Road on your left.  Walk about 300 yards along the Glen Chass Road, past the big house on your right called Braeside, and the planting site is a further 100 yards on your right.
