New Year, New Trees, New Hope

Three tree saplings per household plus canes, are being offered free of charge to people living in Bridport. The varieties available in February are: Silver Birch, Downy Birch, Green Beech, Rowan, Bird Cherry, Goat Willow, Hawthorn, Dogwood, Grey Willow, Alder and Hornbeam.

Does anyone need free tree guards? We have some which look like this … length is 60 cms, so good for rabbits but not deer. Inquire and we can deliver.

Please contact Joe Hackett, Co-Ordinator, Bridport Tree Planting at with requests before stocks run low.

Are you able to help the environment for an hour? Please go along to The Shed, 100 metres east of Mountfield, on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday morning between 10 am and noon to make mulch mats out of cardboard. Mulch mats help retain moisture for newly planted saplings and suppress weeds. There is a template to copy at The Shed, and tools to use.
