Greenham residents adopt trees
In recent weeks, twelve young trees have been planted in the front gardens of houses in Westwood Road and New Road, Greenham, under an ‘Adopt a Tree’ scheme organised by the Greener Greenham volunteer group. All were ornamental trees including malus (crab apple, main picture), prunus (flowering cherry) and sorbus (rowan) species. They will make a colourful addition to the area as well as benefitting the environment.
Adam Berry, pictured below with his wife Steph, collecting their tree, commented;
“Both Steph and I like the idea of trying to increase the number of trees, and the opportunity to get involved and help out by having one in our garden was great.”
This ‘Streets where we Live’ project was funded from donations via the Good Exchange, and can be extended to other streets in the area as further trees are available, for planting up to the end of March 2022. For more information, check out the Good Exchange ‘Streets where we Live’ page here.
