Parkside School students plant new woodland
9:00am Monday 9th December 2013 in News
School pupils and staff in Cullingworth have done their bit for the environment by planting dozens of trees outside their school.
The students from Parkside made the most of a free offering of 480 saplings from the Woodland Trust.
They expect the trees, which are all native species, will develop into a flourishing young wood in as little as 10 years.
A spokesman for Parkside said: “We applied for a tree pack from the Woodland Trust to enhance our neighbourhood and enrich the local environment, while creating new homes for wildlife.”
John Tucker, of the Woodland Trust, said: “By teaming up with organisations like Parkside School, we are working to double our native woodland cover and enrich our landscape.”
