On the 19th of October 2016, 9 volunteers from Tarmac helped us to mulch the Trees in the Jubilee Wood. The ladies spent all day with us and worked really well, so much so that we ran out of mulch. Tree mulching is very important for young trees as it helps to keep the roots moist and it blocks out the competition from weeds which compete for the nutrients in the ground.
After we’d run out of mulch, the ladies switched to raking grass from our hay meadow.
A big thank you to the volunteers and we hope to see you again soon.
