Two months on from the hydroseed treatment of bare earth left after summer building works at the National Star College and the grass is thriving. New trees are also in the ground courtesy of the Woodland Trust, who supplied 420 saplings, as part of their initiative to donate trees to schools and communities. The trees will establish quickly, growing to approximately the height of an adult in 8 years. There is a selection of packs to choose from; the Star College has a Wildlife Pack, which is a mixture of hawthorn, rowan, blackthorn, silver birch, hazel and common oak. This will support a biodiverse habitat for a huge variety of wildlife in this peaceful location.
We work regularly with the National Star College so we’re looking forward to seeing this woodland belt become established in the coming months and years.
