The theme for our online monthly meeting, on Tuesday 15th December starting at 7.30pm, was planting trees.
There was a variety of short presentations including tree planting in Stokesley, Hutton Rudby and Ingleby Greenhow and input from a local resident who is lucky enough to be planting his own wood and another who has developed a forest garden. There was information about funding for planting trees and a discussion about finding suitable land, which trees might be appropriate to plant and managing the planting afterwards.
Finally, as a reminder why we should look after the trees we looked at the ongoing Ancient Tree Inventory, an initiative which records the ancient and old trees across the country. Some very local trees were used as examples.
Here are presentations and recordings from the Zoom meeting. Thank you to all those who provided input to the session, particularly Anne who had to phone in due to the poor internet connection in her area.
