Free Trees



Since mentioning this in the November Magazine I have been told that the trees can only be planted on public accessable land, and not on private land.

I'm sorry for this change from last year.

However, if you know of any areas of public accessable land where trees could be planted I would love to hear from you.


As part of the initiative to plant more trees in Cornwall to absorbe carbon dioxide, I may be able to get free trees for planting on public accessable land in St Tudy parish.

Trees could also be planted in the surrounding parishes.

These will be small bare root saplings.

Last year we planted 150 trees shared between 8 villagers and the new cemetery.

Can we plant 200 this year!
