We are aiming to start planting the Community Orchard on the plateau in early November. This will create a lovely new feature in the park as well as a new habitat for wildlife. We will be planting around 300 trees. The majority will be 2-year-old whips, but we will also plant 20 larger specimens for some instant impact. We will be employing CiP to assist with the planting and for subsequent maintenance. The whips will be slot planted, which will be much quicker than digging holes, but with 280 whips to go in we will need lots of help.
