Treesa Green helps plant trees in local school for National Tree Week.

Pupils from Westfield School in Radstock have stolen a march on Government plans to plant thousands of trees, by joining forces with local hybrid mail company CFH Docmail to start the job in National Tree Week. CFH Docmail provided the saplings and man power as part of their Top Tree Initiative which has already seen the company fund the planting of 100,000 trees across the UK in partnership with The Woodland Trust.

CFH Director Jon Marsh and CFH environmental superhero Treesa Green helped Year 4 children plant a selection of indigenous trees and hedgerow species including hazel, dogwood, beech, hornbeam and weeping copper beech.

Year 4 teacher Josephine Ross gave everyone a lesson on how to plant a sapling.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and everyone got good and muddy!

Treesa Green addressed the assembly and talked about the importance of trees to the environment. This session was interactive and the pupils’ clearly demonstrated their interest and understanding of the part that trees play in protecting and improving the areas we live in - in particular how they help with flooding which was very topical given the torrential rains the previous week.

A group of Year 2 children read and shared the Treesa Green Goes To School book which they had practiced in the classroom (Treesa Green tells us she was amazed by their performance)!  Each KS1 child received a copy of the Treesa Green book and CFH Docmail presented 40 wild cherry trees to the members of the afterschool Forestry/Gardening Club!

Deputy Head, Chris Chorley who organised the day of activity said
“we were delighted as part of National Tree Week for Westfield Primary to team up with local business CFH Docmail to plant some trees around the school area. Huge thanks to CFH Docmail for their support and involvement.”

With a special thanks to our supplier of saplings - Alba Trees.
