In a recent tree survey a number of diseased and damaged trees were identified in Boxhill Recreation Ground and were removed. However, in keeping with the Town Councils policy to replace any trees taken down, our outside works team worked with Carbon Cutters and a group of fantastic volunteers in November 2020 to plant 20 fruit trees in Boxhill Recreation Ground to make a community orchard.
These have been planted to help increase the biodiversity of the town and are part of a long-term plan to establish a wildflower area here.
The Trees includes 3 different apple varieties – (Cox’s Orange Pippin, Golden Delicious and Royal Gala), Conference Pears and Victoria plum.
A big thank you to Carbon Cutters and the volunteers for their invaluable help with this project.
