Plant a tree in Frodsham – to commemorate COVID-19

LANDOWNERS in the Frodsham area are being encouraged to plant trees to commemorate the outbreak of COVID-19.
The call comes from the Frodsham Root Network and from users of the Townfield Lane Allotments.
November marks the start of the tree planting season – a time for the regeneration and rejuvenation of the environment.
Local landowners are being asked to plant trees to commemorate the outbreak of COVID-19 and those who have lost their lives, while celebrating the solace that so many people have found in nature.
Will Moran, from Townfield Lane Allotments said: “We have applied for five oak trees from Save The Oaks. A symbol of strength and endurance, it seems a particularly fitting tree to plant at the moment. These are for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”
Sian Day, from Frodsham Root Network said: “This year has been so difficult for so many people, we hope that tree planting will bring some much needed positivity.
“With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to dominate nearly every aspect of our lives, the comfort we find in nature is more important than ever. Whether you have space for a couple of trees or want to create a woodland, we’d love to hear from you.”
Frodsham Root Network will be working with The Mersey Forest to identify sites for tree planting and make sure the right tree goes in the right place.
For larger tree planting schemes, The Mersey Forest will be able to provide support with environmental impact assessment, scheme design and applying for funds where available.
To register an interest in planting trees, contact Sian Day, Frodsham Root Network on frodshamrootnetwork@gmail.com or call 07789 791495.
Frodsham Root Network – a Frodsham Transition Initiative project – connects people who want to protect, improve and enjoy green spaces in and around Frodsham., providing a single point of contact for landowners, volunteer groups and local people; so that volunteers can get the support they need to make their projects happen and the public can more easily access the nature on their doorstep. Their goal is to see a network of high quality, biodiverse, well maintained and well used green spaces, for a healthier, happier community where people and nature can thrive.
