Local volunteers protecting Whitelands Copse 

Local volunteers were hard at work, last weekend, erecting new fencing around the young trees growing in Whitelands Copse about St James Estate. The aim is to give these tiny tree ‘whips’ the best start in life by protecting them from being trampled. 

Last November the Clanfield Working Group (CWG) supported local residents to brave freezing conditions as they planted 150 native tree species including oak, yew, lime, field maple, wild cherry, beech, whitebeam and birch. More trees are expected to arrive later in 2022 to complete this planting project CWG Tree Planting 

Members of the CWG will be maintaining the copse during the year; mulching the ground, mowing the grass and watering in the height of the summer. The work they put in during these early years will pay dividends in later decades, as the copse grows to enhance our village for generations to come.
