New trees for South Yorkshire's green network
December 19, 2012
During December South Yorkshire Forest Partnership (SYFP) has supported two tree planting events via its Gift That Grows planting scheme. The events, held in Owlthorpe and the Porter Valley, were attended by families and individuals who have made donations for tree planting in South Yorkshire.
In Owlthorpe wild orchard, the Cole family planted apple trees to celebrate their wedding anniversary and at Forge Dam musician Richard Hawley planted a walnut tree with the Friends of the Porter Valley, which was accompanied by a family planting a Japanese cherry tree in commemoration. Children’s wishes were included in the tree pits to give both them and the trees a strong boost for the future!
