Tree Planting in Chew Magna

A small group of socially distanced parishioners planted 100 trees up at the King George V playing fields on Thursday. The trees which were donated by the Woodland Trust include Oak, Field Maple, Wild Cherry, Rowan, Silver Birch and Willow. 

Over the next 50 years these trees will absorb around 100 tonnes of CO2 which is equivalent to the CO2 produced by one gas boiler over the same period. So we need to plant a lot more trees and at the same time improve our house insulation, turn our thermostats down and switch to greener ways of heating our homes.
