Join the last Community Tree Plant at Willow Wood – Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January 2020, 10:00-12:00 hrs.

The trees have now arrived, they’re ready to be planted, and the weather forecast looks good! All are welcome to join us for the last hurrah and do your bit for the environment. All we ask is that you bring a fork with you.

To coincide with the Woodland Trust tree planting mission as part of Big Climate Fightback, we are launching our community tree-planting campaign to encourage 600 residents all ages and walks of life to plant one tree – a total of 1km – beside Willow Wood. This will complete our legacy project which has seen 5,000 trees planted in Willow Wood in the last seven years.

Access to Willow Wood, very much a hidden gem in Amersham, is via Stanley Hill Cemetery or by accessing the public footpath beside the cemetery entrance gate, just past the college in Stanley Hill.
