Nine new trees were already planted along North Meadow Walk earlier in the month, including including Oak, Lime, Walnut, Beech and Hornbeam. The Friends will water the trees and also put mulch around the bases to ensure they stay safe. The Friends have another three trees to plant this year, all paid for by their own fundraising and a grant from abrdn Charitable Foundation which should allow them to plant trees next year at this time.
