You may have already heard about Treesponsibility, a local environmental group, they appeared in Positive News newspaper last year. Now the group is putting an urgent appeal for local volunteers to help plant a backlog of trees after the snow and ice thwarted plans to plant out a bulk of trees in January.
Project Co-ordinator, Penny Eastwood, is asking for local volunteers to come forward saying, “We still have nearly 10,000 trees to get in the ground before March 31st, in order to complete our sites at White Slack and Steanor Bottom.
“We have scheduled additional planting days every Wednesday and Thursday in February, as well as public weekend plantings on the 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th and 20th of March. Morning pick ups can be arranged from Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Walsden.
“We also thought that there may be some groups or schools out there in Calderdale who would consider doing a ’500 Tree Challenge’ to raise money for Haiti. That way we could get our trees planted at the same time as sending some money to where it is desperately needed.”
Volunteers are requested to contact the group in advance on 01422 845418 or at email@example.com ‚Ä®It is also advisable to ring on the day 07847 815 926 if the weather is in doubt.
