As part of our commitment to the environment, Eco Web Hosting was delighted to spend a few hours yesterday helping to plant 270 native trees and bushes.
While half of the field was reserved as a paddock for the miniature Shetland ponies, the other half is being converted into a nature reserve, with bird feeders, small ponds, and now, thanks to us, a natural hedgerow, with Scots pines, evergreen oaks, hornbeams, hawthorns, and more.
The planting was done by the wonderful Aveland Trees, a Lincolnshire-based arborist that specialises in native trees. Their expert team worked fast in the cool November drizzle, efficiently matching trees with hedge shrubs to provide, in a couple of years, a beautiful and wild hedgerow ideal for wildlife.
With acres of countryside around this field, this hedgerow will provide plenty of shelter and food for animals in the area, including badgers, rabbits, foxes, tits, robins, owls, woodpeckers, finches, and frogs.
We were delighted to plant native trees in this beautiful part of England and look forward to seeing their growth in the future.
