Volunteers work hard to replace trees in Salisbury

Volunteers work hard to replace trees in Salisbury

A happy team of volunteers came together on the 28th November to replace trees along the Avon Valley Path (alongside Waitrose) and at the University Technical College (Wilton Road).  The trees have been planted at the request, and with the funding, of the Air Quality Management sub group of the Salisbury Area Board.   Trees are a positive contributor to air pollution, and the Area Board has been focusing on those sites within Wiltshire Council land ownership affected by pollution particularly from traffic on the A36.  Thank you to the volunteers who joined us on Saturday.  Work will continue to ensure an effective watering strategy is put in place to help these new trees thrive.

Volunteers are a brilliant resource for the Salisbury Community Area, whether that is for tree planting, mentoring schemes, supporting the local library or marshalling at community events.  If you would like to sign up as a volunteer, whether for general volunteering opportunities or for something specific, please contact Karen Linaker, Community Engagement Manager on 01722 434697 or email her at karen.linaker@wiltshire.gov.uk .
