Volunteers are needed to help plant several large new trees in Wrexham.

Planting sessions will take place on green space at St. Giles Crescent in Caia Park on Sunday March 3 between 10-4pm.

11 new trees are set to be planted on the site.

At Pendine Way in Gwersyllt four oak trees and a fruit orcahrd will be planted on Sunday March 10 between 10-4pm.

A lot of work is needed to prepare the ground when planting large trees, so as much help as possible is needed to get them into the ground.

Throughout the sessions volunteers get to take part in staking, guarding and putting a mulch ring around each tree so they are well protected and receive the best start in their new home.

The planting is taking place thanks to Trees for Cities, a UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by planting trees in cities which areas helps revitalise forgotten spaces; creating healthier environments for people and wildlife.

Funding from the charity has been granted to plant over 60 large trees throughout the county borough.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “This work also supports the work of Wrexham Forest Partnership and the Council Tree and Woodland Strategy as we commit to increase canopy cover throughout the county.

“Wrexham Forest Partnership has a shared vision to protect and enhance woodland habitats throughout the County and are keen to gain public support for woodlands in Wrexham and have created the Wrexham Woodland Pledge as a way to get the general public involved.

“If you are concerned about our woodlands in Wrexham, you can sign up to the pledge.

“We want everyone, from individuals to businesses and community groups to lend their support and learn about the ways we can protect this vital habitat and you can sign the pledge and join a mailing list here.”

You can also follow Wrexham Woodland Pledge on Facebook and X (twitter) to keep up to date on activities, events and action.

Please come to the planting sessions wearing warm clothes and wellies or sturdy boots. Gloves are also recommended.
