Tree planting in Llanfyllin

Saturday 10th November saw 35 volunteers descending on the fields next to the River Cain, near the Llanfyllin river access and nature reserve project. 420 trees from the Woodland Trust needed planting. The trees were native species of rowan, oak, hawthorn etc and came as 10-12" twigs with their own root plug. The ground was very wet so planting was fairly easy and in 1.5 hours all 420 were in the ground, with canes and tree spirals. A great result for everyone involved, especially members of the Llanfyllin Civic Society and the Cain Valley River group who put a lot of time into organisation. As everyone was quite spread out, it was hard to get good action shots, but here are the best!
