Celebrating National Tree Week with Coppice Valley Primary School

We had some very special visitors to site this week as a group of 36, year 4 children from Coppice Valley Primary School  joined us to plant tree seedlings in the woodland area surrounding the site. The children were joined by a number of representatives from Harrogate Borough Council and were excited to be part of such an important project for the town.

Around 100 young trees, including hazel, rowan, field maple and hawthorn, were planted along the north side of the site at Knapping Mount, as part of National Tree Week. The young trees were planted alongside more mature trees in the area to help in the regeneration of the woodland and provide a continued safe habitat for local wildlife.

The pupils carried out the planting, along with the Mayor of the Borough of Harrogate Councillor Nick Brown, and Michael Harrison, the Deputy Leader of Harrogate Borough Council.
