The Free Tree Scheme has already seen thousands of trees planted and North West Leicestershire District Council is once again teaming up with The National Forest Company to make our district even greener.
The offer is available to each household and community organisation within the district and there are four trees to choose from: crab apple, field maple, white beam and wild cherry. All the trees are two years old and approximately 60-90cms (2 to 3 feet) high. They will be supplied together with a guidance sheet on how to plant and to look after them.
The introduction of the hedge fund last year was very successful, and again this year there are a number of hedge packs available, which will consist of predominantly hawthorn trees and a smaller number of field maple and crab apple trees.
The collection point for your trees will depend on where you live:
- Ashby Library car park, North Street, Ashby de la Zouch on Sunday 23rd November 2014 between 9.00 am and 10.30 am only.
- The Market Place, Castle Donington on Sunday 23rd November 2014 between 11.00 am and12.00 noon only.
- Council offices car park, Coalville on Sunday 23rd November 2014 between 9.00 am and 10.30 am only.
The offer is a partnership initiative between North West Leicestershire District Council and the National Forest Company as part of the district-wide Green Footprints Challenge.
