Another Eco-CITO in Horsbere Nature Reserve. The area is looking good with all the saplings planted. Today's activities lead on from previous.
Some of the newest plantings are suffering from the lack of a good downpour (many others are thriving despite). So the saplings, especially the droopy ones are to be treated to a good mulching- this to enrich/hydrate the sluggards and reward the burgeoning.
Ranger Felicity has a bench to install in one of the glades left midst the planting.
And otherwise there is "trimming" to do- I'm not sure what this involves but it probably includes giving some of the stakes an extra bash in and maybe there are still a few trees without deer-guards.
Once more our efforts will be supervised by the ranger, Felicity, who will supply the tools needed. (you may like to bring your own gloves)
All normal Health and Safety rules will apply.
Dogs and children need to be kept under the control of their owner/guardian.
