Corporate volunteers create a wood in a day with Dr Who!
On a crisp and clear December morning we are joined by over 90 volunteers who plant 1000 trees and create a lasting legacy, "Honey Bee Wood" in Warwickshire. The wood will be home to 12 beehives with over 400,000 bees. The trees planted include English Oak, Silver Birch, Alder, Beech, Goat Willow, Hawthorn, Blackthorn and Hornbeam.
We also have support from Dr Who, Walder Frey from Game of Thrones and Filch from Harry Potter in the shape of the actor David Bradley.
Volunteers make light work of planting 1000 trees
Volunteers help out from Brewin Dolphin, Box Factory, adi Group, Calor, NFU Mutual, Q Hotels, Co-op Travel, Co-op Energy, Jaguar Land Rover, Air Ambulance Service, Speller Metcalfe, Cass Worldwide, Parkinson's UK, Planting Ideas, Graduate Planet and Camden 360 Communications.
With so many helping hands and a beautiful day the trees are planted, mulched and protected in no time.
Generous support from corporate sponsors
We want to pay a huge thanks to local corporate sponsors who have donated time, tools and money to support the Forest of Hearts. These include Buildbase, Box Factory, Vale Fresco, Jewson, Cass Worldwide and adi Group.
Thanks also to The Conservation Volunteers and The woodland Trust for donating the trees.
Honey Bee Wood for future generations
Honey Bee Wood is a place for environmental benefit and provides a haven for wildlife and biodiversity. In the future groups will use the wood for education and enjoyment. You can get involved and dedicate a tree by making a donation here.
