Necessity is the mother of invention. A large batch of trees had been ordered for the park in March, but the world had other ideas for what would happen this month. So what to do with the trees? Temporarily at least, our very own Tiny Forest has been created in an area the size of a tennis court.
In due course the tiny forest will be replanted in a less dense pattern around the park. Meanwhile, just like Witney (the village), for the time being at least we have our own version.
And just to recapitulate the 480 trees planted below.
