The work will run from 10am and the group expect it to take two/ three hours.

Margaret Harrison from Burgh Beautiful said: “An hour of your time would be a great help.”

The trees have been given to Burgh Beautiful by the Woodland Trust and will complete the main planting effort on the site.

Margaret added: "The job is simply to clear a small patch of ground and make a cross slit with a spade to insert the young tree plug. Then add a spiral tree guard and a supporting cane. Triangle Wood is approached from the Leisure Centre by crossing the sports field walking parallel to the canal.”

To register, email [email protected], or simply turn up on the day. Bring a spade, work gloves and sturdy footwear.
