WILLOW WOOD: Amersham Town Council to start New Year with another tree plant

 Published on: 7th December 2021   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

Amersham Town Council (ATC) is beginning the final phase of its ambitious tree planting project to kick off the New Year.

ATC volunteers have been working on their Willow Wood legacy project since 2012, so far planting 7,200 trees behind Stanley Hill Cemetery.

To mark the final phase of the project, ATC is holding a community tree plant on Monday, January 3, from 9.30-11.30am.

The final stage will see a further 300 trees planted, completing the project. In addition, next year’s community plant will form part of The Queen’s Canopy tree planting initiative to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’ to commemorate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

An ATC spokesperson said: “The benefits of trees has long been documented, and in the current changing climate, never has restoring our natural environment been more pertinent.

“So, come along with a fork or spade and help to make a real difference – one that we hope many future generations will benefit from. Thank you to Old Amersham Revitalisation Group for funding the trees.”

The project has involved hundreds of residents in previous planting sessions.
