Birmingham Trees for Life have visited Ward End Park several times over the last 10 years and today we enlisted the help of staff from HSBC in Birmingham to ‘ lift the crowns’ on a few of the established trees.(Trim off the lower branches)
HSBC volunteers were with us all morning and were also keen to help plant some more whips (small trees) to fill in any gaps where trees have been lost.
You can see that they entered into the spirit, as one of their staff had kindly baked some ‘tree themed’ cup cakes! They were yummy…..
Our thanks to everyone that turned out, as the work undertaken today will make a major difference to this burgeoning area of woodland. Ward End Park has a dedicated team of volunteers and they will really appreciate this extra effort in their beautiful park.
