Many volunteers braved the wet and cold conditions on Saturday 7 January to come to south Hornchurch and help plant trees. This was the Havering Daily’s second event as part of the Trees for Havering campaign that saw us plant hundreds of trees at Ingrebourne Hill.
Volunteers from the community joined forces with members of Forestry England and Havering Residents Association Councillors to come and plant rows of trees.
Councillors Graham Williamson and Gillian Ford donned shovels and planted many trees to help our environnment and support our wildlife.
With overdevelopment rife not just across Havering but also across London as a whole, our wildlife is being eradicated in favour of more housing blocks. The planting of more trees is vital for us as a society and for the existence of our wildlife.
A mixture of trees were planted to create a hedgerow that will support wildlife and biodiversity.
Well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to the Woodland Trust and the Conservation Volunteers for supplying the trees.
