Cradle for Nature


Planted in November 2009

Species: Willow

The first batch were pre-prepared willow sticks that had been treated with rooting powder. We then planted more from cuttings taken from within one of the plots on the hill. Most of the willows were simply pushed into the ground and very little digging was needed.


Year 1:
2010 - no tagging and measuring was done. The willows seem healthy and most survived the harsh winter. Even the locally-cut willow sticks have done well.
