Inspire Denny and Dunipace are holding a series of drop-in Tree-Planting Sessions at the grassy area backing on to Denny Cemetery, behind Denny High School, on:
They will be planting 400 native trees, awarded via the “I Dig Trees” scheme from The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) and OVO Energy. To access the meeting point, people should follow the footpath behind the Denny Centre (down to the bottom of the hill, past the back of the High School and along the new cycle path).
The trees will help reduce the area’s carbon footprint, encourage biodiversity and wildlife, and provide additional cover for deer, squirrels and birds, while enhancing the area for residents and visitors.
Those interested are welcome to bring their own spade and gloves, though there will be equipment available if needed. Inspire Denny and Dunipace recommends everyone attending wear sturdy footwear and a waterproof jacket.
As the events are drop-ins, people are welcome to come and go as they like; however, Inspire Denny and Dunipace ask that people hoping to attend get in touch to give them a rough idea of numbers for equipment.
