This time last year the Society embarked on a project to plant 50 trees in the Ramsgate Conservation Area to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the designation of the Conservation Area by TDC in 1970.
Of the 50 trees initially planted last year, 9 have had to be replaced due to a combination of vandalism and natural causes but the remaining trees are flourishing. At additional cost we have managed to source replacements for those trees that failed and thanks to Peter Halsted and his team at Thanet Urban Forest the replacement trees were planted last week. Thanks also to Maxine Morgan and her team of volunteers at Courtstairs Park who have helped with the replanting- see photos attached.
We may have to do some additional fundraising to cover the extra costs of replacing these nine trees, but more about that in our February Newsletter.
