As part of a Humanist Climate Action event, two small willows were planted to augment the 18 trees that were put in over a year ago to help screen the A2 bridge. Bizarrely, one of them was pulled up a few days later, but was swiftly replanted and may yet survive. The bigger trees that were planted last year are looking much healthier after the damp start to their growing season; if the summer doesn’t bring another severe drought we can expect vigorous growth without the need for an extended watering campaign.
