Tree-mendous weekend of activities on offer in Exmouth

Residents have been invited to join in a weekend of tree celebrations and planting in Exmouth.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) has organised two days of activities later this month.

They include a tree trail, stories and a giant tree map at Phear Park on Saturday, November 23, from 11am until late.

People of all ages can suggest ideas for Exmouth’s ‘tree vision’, as well as learning about some of the amazing trees in the park and wider town.

On Sunday, November 24, people can be part of a ‘carbon-busting dream team’ – creating habitat for birds, bees, mammals and more at a community tree planting day.

It takes place at St John’s Road Playing Field between noon and 4pm.

Anyone taking part can choose a tree to plant between the playing fields and Hillcrest Community Nature Reserve.

Councillor Geoff Jung, environment portfolio holder for EDDC, said: “This is an amazing opportunity over two days for people to have fun and plan the treescape for the Exmouth area into the future.

“People can help with tree planting which brings benefits for wildlife, landscape and the climate.

“It’s very important that we come together to make space for nature and to make a positive difference to our climate by planting young trees in suitable locations.

“The Wild Exmouth project is a brilliant example of partnership working which has our communities at its heart. I’m looking forward to the weekend of events.”
