20 New Oak Trees for Swanage on High Street Verge
Dorset Council planted 20 young oak trees along the northern verge of the High Street on the way into Swanage at the end of November.
The Sustainable Swanage group worked with Dorset Council on developing this project and have raised funds to pay towards the planting of ten trees while the other ten are being provided under Dorset Council’s policy of replacing previously felled trees.
Members of the public generously donated to sponsor the project and we have been overwhelmed with support, thank you to everyone who contributed and got in touch. We are looking to develop more projects next year. We had hoped that volunteers would be able to help with the planting but unfortunately covid-19 restrictions at the time prevented this.
