Tree Care with Class 2

Years 1 and 2 at Wenhaston Primary School worked hard on Friday afternoon looking after the oak trees planted by their school in Grove Piece. Tree guards were removed from sturdy, vigorous trees, weeds were removed or cut down and a mulch of straw was placed around the base of trees to help them survive any drought and to reduce the growth of weeds. Back at the school tree nursery the very small oak, sweet chestnut and hazel trees were weeded, watered and mulched with grass cuttings to help them on their way. A very good afternoon’s work Class 2.
