Our tree planting and box installation sites

 

Here you can find information about where our work is being carried out

As many of our site are on private land, we don’t give out actual addresses, but you can see the areas where we’re working and sponsors will be able to find some details about the site they’re sponsoring. Trees will only be planted, and boxes installed on suitable sites.

  • Site 1.  14 acres in the Clun Valley.
    – A stunning site in prime South Shropshire countryside, with the cries of Red Kites filling the air.

  • Site 2.  Plantation Wood Ellesmere – Open to the public.
