This story is over

Green-fingered volunteers have given up their spare time to plant trees across West Lindsey.

The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) have been creating future woodlands at Cherry Holt in Cherry Willingham, Sturton by Stow, Jubilee Field in Faldingworth and Trent Port in Morton.

Upcoming projects over the next month will see further planting in Dunholme and at Mercer Wood and Theaker Avenue in Gainsborough.

Funding for the tree planting projects has been provided courtesy of Western Power Distribution’s keen to be green initiative, which will see over 600 trees planted in West Lindsey this season.

TCV West Lindsey project officer Darren Nortcliffe said: “These projects make a real difference.

“Whilst growing, and on maturity these trees will provide habitat for wildlife and reduce carbon in the atmosphere for many years to come and also provide local residents with an area that they can be proud of.”
