National Tree Week Emsworth

Tree Wardens in Emsworth assisted school children from Emsworth Primary School to plant 30 trees in their school grounds in December 2009, as a part of the National Tree Week. The trees, a mixture of Silver Birch, Wild Cherry and Rowan, were supplied for free by the Woodland Trust Tree For All scheme.

The Tree Wardens prepared the ground in advance of the children planting the trees. On the day of planting, groups of children were brought out to plant the trees at the prepared site in the school grounds. John Green a Havant Borough Tree Warden demonstrated how the trees should be planted and later planted an Elm and 2 Oaks in the school grounds.
