The site is close to the south Devon coastal path & there are chances to
combine the day with a coastal walk. We will be planting 1000 trees on a
hedge to create wildlife habitat and a windbreak. This is a great
opportunity to get experience in tree planting,
hedge maintenance and to learn about the benefits of trees. Trees for Health
aims to promote the benefits of trees for both the ecology and people of an
area. We will be researching the use of trees medicinally over the next few
months ready for an exciting new venture of making remedies in the spring.
