Tree and Shrub Planting

January 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Every day until January 22, 2023
| Free

Help us plant British saplings near Liskeard to provide a habitat for local wildlife and sequester carbon dioxide.

Saturday 21st January at 10am to Sunday 22nd January at 4pm.

Protect Earth is a reforestation charity that helps plant the right trees in the right place, when government grants fail to help land owners reforest. We work with local climate action groups and volunteers so we can all do this on a shoestring budget, and save the planet a little bit every week.

We are going to be planting 550 trees of the following species: Sessile Oak, Downy Birch, Aspen, Rowan, Alder, Small-leaved Lime, Wild Service, Goat Willow.

Things we ask that you bring if possible:

  • A spade – a small border spade or a fencing spade / drainage shovel (which have a narrow/pointed blade) are ideal for tree planting. A large spade is ok, too.

  • Gardening gloves – the sturdier the better

  • Sturdy footwear – preferably boots or wellies

  • Plenty of food and water

  • Hand sanitiser

We’ll send out more information closer to the time about how and where parking works, but we always appreciate anyone who can uses trains/bikes/etc to ease parking on the farm, and of course reduce emissions!
