Community tree planting - volunteers welcome!

Tiverton Tree Team is back in action, and there are many ways to get involved with tree conservation and planting across the Mid Devon district! Community tree planting was not possible last year, but much work has been done to plan new tree planting opportunities, and there is now a full programme of activities over the winter months. See activity dates below...
Tree and Spade

Tree and Spade

Volunteers needed for 2022..!

There will be several days spent restocking ancient woodland, plus a day caring for previous plantings. Please register with jess (at) farleigh and bring your own spade if possible. There is an ambitious programme and we need many volunteers to make it successful. Tree care volunteers are vital to help look after the thousands of trees that the group has planted so far. Contact TTT for details of how to join in.  

There is also an online fundraiser for the tree team.

Community Orchard 

The community orchard creation at Tiverton was a great success! Come and join the Orchard Opening Party and Easter Egg Hunt at 11am on Good Friday, 15th April 2022. 

Rosie Wibberley, from Tiverton Tree Team said:

“Planting trees is great exercise and great fun. Before the pandemic, the Tiverton Tree Team regularly had 70 volunteers out planting 1000s of trees once a month and this year we are back with even more commitment and enthusiasm."

"If anyone would like to join us, please email, follow us on Twitter (@tivvytreeteam) or join our Facebook group ‘Tiverton Tree Team’.”
