Cultivation Field Wildlife Corridor Tree Planting Project in Palmer Park, Reading UK
Cultivation Field planted 420 Woodland Trust tree saplings in Palmer Park, Reading, on the 12th November 2016 and further 420 Woodland Trust tree saplings on the 19th November 2017 creating a Wildlife Corridor. RBC gave permission to plant the Woodland Trust trees in Palmer Park and the project brings together the local community, environmentalists, artists and groups including Transition Town Reading and the Green Party. The Cultivation Field Wildlife Corridor will continue a line of trees planted a few years ago along the fence next to the railway line.
Unfortunately in November 2019 the unmarked young trees in Palmer Park were accidentally cut down. Cultivation Field are working with RBC, TCV and the local community to replant the trees in December 2019 so the Wildlife Corridor can regrow and expand.
If you have suggestions as to where Cultivation Field can plant further trees expanding this project on another occasion, please do put forward your suggestions, (both national and international).
Other tree planting projects we have been involved in are Woodland Trust trees for villages around Heathrow (2016). Trees were planted in parks in at Harmondsworth, Harlington and Sipson.
