As the tree planting season draws to a close, we’ve come to the conclusion that we really have had enough of trees. Maybe that is a little over the top, but some of our tree planting projects this spring have been enormous, and it’s jolly hard work. Despite the aching muscles though, there’s definitely a sense of pride in a beautifully planted tree, woodland or park. Our office has been heaving with maps and reports, making the daily site visits for our various projects a welcome relief. And, just to prove that it is indeed the start of spring (despite the snow forecast for us in the next few days), our hens at the farm have started laying in earnest. Always a welcome sign that the spring and summer work is finally here.
