Tender Loving Care to Trees




On 5th June 20  volunteers from the Aviva Community Service team and  Rosemary Cook, a Friend of York Rotary, spent the morning  on the site between the River Foss and Haxby Road applying some tender loving care to some of the 1150 trees, planted by Rotary in 2018/19 to commemorate babies born  in York during those years.


The trees are a mix of native species and the proximity to the river has certainly contributed to their healthy  growth  but it means that the other vegetation has also flourished . Pulling out the grass and weeds around the base of the saplings is back breaking work but  the various groups who have volunteered over the last five years to apply some TLC  have certainly made a huge difference. 




A great big Rotary thank you to them and to  Ebba and Hannah  at York Cares who have been so supportive.


The next TLC session will be the annual Family Picnic on Sunday 25th August 2024 between 11.0am and 3.0pm.
