A Walk in the Woods

HMers Ross Rutherford, Lee Murphy, Jan Foster, Ameeta Panesar, Miriam Hall, Iain Baird, Nicky-Rae Watson and Paul Greenhill spent a rather wet Wednesday in Dumfries last week assisting the Cree Valley Community Woodland Trust with their volunteer programme in the area.

Our intrepid team were met by Pete Davidson and Linda Moorehouse of the CVCWT who explained some of the work they do and recent projects they have completed before setting off to collect oak saplings (and acorns) from the local Caldons Wood (just outside Glentrool, Dumfries), which were then to be transferred to a separate site for re-planting in nursery beds. After a few years of growth, these seedlings will then be re-planted in local woodland, so as to boost the population of native oaks in the area.
