The Eco Team, a group of DCGS students committed to improving the environment, have recently been promoting the Amersham Community Tree Plant on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 January. Efforts joined together at Willow Wood, as students gathered together to help the local community
I got involved by planting a cherry tree and a hazel tree. I was pleased to contribute to the environment of Willow Wood, very much a hidden gem in Amersham. My family and I enjoyed taking part in this event. It’s the first time I have ever participated like this and I am proud to have contributed to the local community. This coincided with the Woodland Trust's national tree planting initiative. Residents of all ages, came along to plant a tree over the two days. The trees were all native and approximately 1.5m tall and there were 600 trees to plant in all.
The Woodland Trust aims to get one million people to pledge to plant a tree. The Big Climate Fightback is the largest mass tree planting campaign which is encouraging people to pick up a spade to take action against climate change.
