Woodland grants

The nice people at Woodland Trust are going to give me 900 trees, planting tubes and stakes, to establish a woodland here.

So before I turn 70 we should be self-sufficient in firewood!

We have to contribute £400 to the cost, and we have to do our own planting, but I think the stuff they are supplying us with would cost around £1600 to buy, so this is a good deal.

It is part of their MoreWoods project.

I’m not looking forward to the work of actually planting the 900 trees, though – I don’t really have a good idea how long it will take.  They did suggest hiring a powered auger to dig the holes.  I’ll have to look into it.
