VOLUNTEERS, council staff and local workers plant trees for Harlow.
National Tree Week 2019 takes place from Saturday 23 November to Sunday 1 December 2019.
This week tree planting has taken place with wildspace volunteers planting 50 young oak trees in Parndon Wood Nature Reserve. Workers from Pitney Bowes supported by council staff also planted 100 trees in Hospital & Risden Woods.
Next week during national tree week a further 50 trees will be planted in Parndon Wood with another 100 trees in Hospital & Risden Woods. On Thursday (28 November) volunteers and council staff will be planting trees in the town park.
In July Harlow Council pledged to plant 1,000 trees in a year as part of its commitment to tackling climate change.
A plant a tree for Harlow scheme has also been launched where residents can register their interest and help do their bit for the town. More details can be found at www.harlow.gov.uk
