Whitelands Copse looking good for the autumn!

Whitelands Copse in Clanfield was a busy place this week as local conservation volunteers cut and raked the grass around the 150 small trees planted last autumn.

The Hampshire Monday Group (HMG), who volunteer across East Hampshire, offered their services to Clanfield Parish Council to tidy up this copse of native trees before the weather changes. The team used brushcutters to cut the grass before raking it off, to encourage the growth of wild flowers next year. The copse was planted last November with a mixture of native species including yew, sallow, field maple, lime, wild cherry, blackthorn, guelder rose, oak and beech.

Local volunteers, Clanfield Working Group, have been watering these tiny saplings, every two weeks, throughout the summer and their hard work appears to have been successful, as the majority of the trees have survived the drought. They’re hoping, as a result of the recent rain, they can finally put their watering cans away until next year!

If you would like to volunteer to assist the CWG please contact us via Clanfield Parish Council.
