Help create new native woodlands

by | Jul 31, 2014 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

The Woodland Trust is seeking volunteers to inspire people to create new native woodlands in Hampshire.

The trust is looking for a volunteer with experience in planning or planting new woodland to advise and support others.

Some of the key skills required are an ability to choose appropriate tree species, and experience of planting new woodland and working with groups. In return, the trust gives all volunteers a one-day induction so they feel fully confident in the role.

Planting trees has many benefits, from creating homes for many endangered species such as the dormouse and iconic birds of prey such as barn owls, to providing clean air and beautiful respite places. In the past three years the Woodland Trust has planted over 175,000 trees in Hampshire and created over 90 hectares of woodland with support from volunteers.
