The Ribble Rivers Trust is hosting a free event for members of the public to help plant a new woodland near Tosside on Saturday (November 25th).

Over 7,000 native trees including oak, rowan, birch, field maple and wild cherry will make up the four-hectare woodland in the Forest of Bowland.

The new trees will provide a range of benefits for the environment, including reduced pollution in watercourses, reduced rainfall runoff from fields and provision of new habitat for wildlife.

The woodland at Tosside is just one of six planting schemes that the Ribble Rivers Trust is delivering this winter. To take part, visit www.ribbletrust.org.uk or call 01200 444452.
