Tree Planting for the Platinum Jubilee

To commemorate HRH Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee, over the winter of 2022,Wareside Parish Council has planted various trees as part of the Queen's Green Canopy. 

At the top of Little Oak Heath a Quercus Rubra (Red Oak) was planted. In time this will grow to a height of approximately 32m. While green leaved through the majority of the year it puts on a show turning firey red in the autumn.

Below the playground and along the edge of Little Oak Heath, a selection of native saplings have been planted which include: Aspen,Common Alder, Beech, Bird Cherry, Downy Birch, Hazel,Rowan, Oak, Silver Birch, Hornbeam and Field Maple.

While on the green outside the Village Hall through a kind donation of funds we have planted a mature 'Prunus Tai Haku' - Great White Cherry Tree; which has masses of large, single flowers contrasting well with its young, copper coloured foliage.

Wareside Parish Council hope that these trees bring pleasure to the local community while supporting wildlife.
