The first trees that will form part of a new community woodland have been planted on Carlton Hill to mark the official launch of the project.

The scheme has been launched by the Carlton Hill Community Action Group and its volunteers were joined by park rangers from Gedling Borough Council and Councillor Alex Scroggie who all put the first trees into the ground.

Val Green is a member of the Carlton Hill Community Action Group and helped plant the first trees.

She told Gedling Eye: “We planted three native trees – a Cherry, a Hornbeam and a Beech. In the Autumn we will be inviting local individuals and groups to help us plant more trees and hedgerows during  National Tree Week.

“Plans for the Carlton Hill Community Woodland are being formulated over the coming months, with one idea being to make this a memorial woodland where local residents can dedicate a tree to a loved one.”

The local community are being invited to have their say on the idea or come up with suggestions for how the woodland can be used via Carlton Hill Community Action Group’s social channels.

  • How about fixing the rail fencing at the bottom of the slope behind you and remove the grafitti from the pavillion would be a good start. I was going to say a dog dirt bin on the field but that would encourage the council workers to drive all over the field to visit it as they are too lazy to walk to it.
