Community Woodland Tree Care Day - Bristol Festival of Nature

Event details

At Westonbirt Arboretum's Community Woodland we are re-planting an area of woodland cleared due to ash dieback. Every step of the woodland regeneration is being carried out by volunteers, community groups and schools. 

Come along and help with the project with a day of mulching and tree care. 

This day will involve a 20 minute guided walk from the Welcome Building to our planting site where we will carry out a variety of maintenance tasks including mulching around the trees, checking and re-applying their guards and surveying tree health. All equipment and training will be provided and visitors will be able to work within their comfort zones carrying out as many or as little of these tasks as they would like. 

There will also be self-led scavenger hunts and craft activities running if you need a break from the physical work. 

Suitable for ages 7+.
