Waitrose fund trees in Waterlooville

Hampshire County Council planted three new trees along a path near Hambledon Road, one Oak and two Field Maples. Two of the trees were funded by Havant Borough Tree Wardens using money gained from the Waitrose Community Matters scheme.

The wardens applied to the scheme early in 2010 and later received a cheque for £500. The money also funded the Jubilee Park tree trail leaflet and an Oak tree at Hartplain Junior School.

Later in the year Hartplain Junior School applied for a fruit tree hedge via the Tree Council Hedgerow Harvest scheme. The hedge was planted in the school grounds and will provide an educational resource to the school as well as fruit for the school kitchen.

Waterlooville wardens were also involved in launching the borough favorite tree project and spoke at a government inspectors hearing, regarding some Oak trees undermining the foundations of two extensions.
