Planting Queens Green Canopy

Tree plantings in Halesworth

This is planting Halesworth Tree Wardens did in the town on Sunday 6th February. We planted 10 Whitebeam round the edge of a car park in Halesworth and labelled them all ‘Queens Jubilee’.

There are several Whitebeam there already and some years ago Waveney council planted quite large specimens to complete planting all the way along the edge. They all died as no watering was possible. We have a relationship with the nearby pub and they will let us have water if we get a very dry summer. It seemed to be quite good soil but I suspect it could be on top of a load of rubbish left from building ring road and car park, time will tell.
