CBAG Community Tree Planting Event

 Dig in and help plant trees with Catterline Braes Action GroupDig in and help plant trees with Catterline Braes Action Group.

CBAG is looking for people to join them at their tree planting event on the Catteline Braes Saturday 15th November from 10:00. (Meeting in the Creel Car park)

The group has recently received a free tree pack from the Woodland Trust Scotland to help improve the local environment.

"We are planting these Wetland trees to help support the fragile soil structure of the Catterine Braes. We would appreciate you joining us in this community project and there’s no better way to do that than to roll up your sleeves and get planting! While children are encouraged, it is important that children must be supervised by accompanying adults"

This autumn more than 200 groups across Scotland are planting trees thanks to the free packs, which have been supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to enhance their neighbourhood and enrich the local environment. The trees will form flourishing woodland in as little as 10 years.

If you would like to plant a tree with the group, come prepared. A coat, warm clothes, a pair of stout boots or wellies and possibly a flask of tea are recommended, and please bring a spade if you have one.

Schools and communities are also able to apply for free tree packs to plant in public spaces in spring 2014. To find out more about applying for free trees go to trees.
