Here at Granby Toxteth Development Trust, we like to encourage as much nature into the L8 area as possible. Earlier this week the Woodland Trust delivered to us 105 tree saplings, including such species as hazel, crab apple, downy birch, hawthorn, holly and willow.
Planting is done in Winter when the trees are dormant so as to not disturb the roots too much (it can be quite stressful for them!).Once spring comes around, however, the trees will keep growing and become vital resting points and food sources for birds and other critters for years and years. Many thanks to the Woodland Trust for the saplings and for being so generous with their knowledge!
