Trees For Dorset
A gallery of pictures of some other activities during the past fewyears:
Brownsea Island. A small group of members visited Brownsea to see the Red Squirrels and hear about the long running project to eliminate the Rhododendron that had smothered much of the island. The squirrels obligingly turned out to provide excellent viewing.
New Forest Autumn colours were late developing in 2011 so the walk was postponed until they had fully developed. A group of us enjoyed fine weather and brilliant colours as well as seeing a number of woodland fungi despite the dry autumn. This was followed by tea with homemade teacakes at the New Forest Inn at Emery Down. We try to visit the New Forest in Autumn most years (see programme).
Pruning Demonstration at Kingston Mauward A large group of members and friends attended this demonstration by Nigel Hewish of how to prune a range of trees from native species to fruit trees. Some of us may now feel confident to have a go ourselves!
Propagation demonstration Nigel Hewish demonstrates how to propagate trees. Seeds , cuttings and grafting. Another year he demonstrated how to grow Bonsai trees
Supporting our activities To support our objectives and especially tree planting and the School Project we have a number of fund raising events that also provide an opportunity to promote trees and raise awareness of Trees for Dorset. Among the most important are our plant sale with cream teas, a supper evening and our stand at the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard (see events page). Photos below show our plant sale in the beautiful gardens of the Old Rectory Langton Long,  courtesy of Mr & Mrs Skipwith. More recently we have held our plant sale at Stratton in Christine David’s lovely garden
Each year we have a stand at the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard where we can meet members and others interested in trees and our work. We run a tree identification quiz where some excel though it is disappointing that many don't know the trees they must see everyday - a clear indication more promotion of trees is needed.
Members an friends meet for a supper and entertainment at Springhead where they can also enjoy its beautiful garden.
