Greenhavens Network have collated the 89 BLOGS tree related posts that we have posted in the Greenhavens Network Facebook group throughout the last year into one place below in aid of 2020 National Tree Week. #greenhavensnetwork #NationalTreeWeek

Throughout 2019/2020 we have been busy keeping you up to date with woodlands/trees in greenspaces; We have given you information on what to plant; How to plant and look after trees; How to be safe; Where to get funding from; How to connect with others; What are the pests and diseases you need to look for; What is going on locally and nationally as well as a few inspirational stories along the way!

We always welcome more stories, more people posting, through understanding and being educated about what we want to achieve, working together, we really can make a difference. We hope that the time pulling this collation of blogs together is going to be really useful for you and may we wish you have happy National Tree Planting Week. Don’t forget to let us know where you are planting and share your inspirational stories with us on Greenhavens Network Facebook group.(2) Greenhavens Network | Facebook
