Branch Out and Dig In: Driffield’s Millennium Green Calls for Volunteers to Plant 400 New Trees

Volunteers are being sought to help plant 400 new trees at Driffield’s Millennium Green this weekend.

A community tree planting day, organised by the Driffield Millennium Green Trustees, will take place on Saturday 24th February, starting from 9am.

Last year’s event attracted 40 volunteers of all ages who donned their wellies and picked up their spades to help plant hundreds of new trees.

One of the organisers of the tree planting day, Claire Binnington, said: “We have more than 400 trees to plant and guard, which are not very big, plus a few larger trees.

“We are planting over 20 different species of native trees and shrubs to improve the ecological structure of the Green.”

Anyone who is interested in taking part is asked to meet at the Green at 9am and can lend their hand for any length of time to suit them.

Volunteers are advised to dress appropriately for the weather with gloves, a warm coat and wellies or boots ideal and are asked to bring along a spade and a wheelbarrow if they have one.
