by | Nov 16, 2015 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

An ancient tree workshop aimed to educate the people of Plymouth about how to protect such trees will take place this Saturday as part of a Cornwall heritage project.

The third and final ancient tree workshop will be held in St Germans later this month as part of the Helping Hands for Heritage project, providing people with the skills needed to help survey and record ancient and special trees in the Tamar Valley landscape.

Tim Kellett from the Cornwall Ancient Tree Forum will lead the event, starting with an indoor session during the morning, followed by practical activities on the Port Eliot estate in the afternoon, by kind permission of Lord and Lady St Germans.

This free event takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and will include lunch and refreshments.

Booking is essential as places are limited and the organisers have stated that no dogs are allowed.

To secure your place, or for further information, please contact the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team on 01822 835030 or email
