A community woodland in Jersey has celebrated its tenth anniversary on Saturday 21st June. 79 year-old Enid Gautier came up with the idea to plant more than one hundred, mostly native trees, to create Adelina Wood, just off Queen’s Road.
The young woodland also includes a number of exotic trees. Members of the group and local islanders came forward to financially support the trees.
Mrs Gautier said she’s happy with how the woodland has flourished over the years: “I am delighted with how Adelina Wood has come to life and how the many types of trees have grown over the last ten years.
“My late husband and I wanted to give something back to the island and establish a public green space for all to enjoy, now and in the future. I thank the Jersey Trees for Life team for designing and managing the arboretum and creating a very special place.”
