Lack­ham stu­dents lend a hand to local tree plant­i­ng project


Countryside Management students from Wiltshire College & University Centre spent the day supporting a local tree planting project.

Students from Wiltshire College & University Centre's Lackham campus have been helping out in the local community with another tree planting trip to Lacock Alpaca.

A group from the Level 3 Countryside Management course spent the day planting hundreds of trees at the small alpaca farm at Oakley Farm, which is just outside Melksham near the campus.

The trees will help create a network of broadleaf woodlands, which will eventually lock up thousands of tonnes of carbon and provide valuable habitats to help rebuild biodiversity.

All of the trees and protection materials were supplied by the Woodland Trust and local landowners have set aside areas of land for woodlands to be planted.

The planting is part of a longer-term and large-scale ambition to connect existing woodland areas in the landscape surrounding Lackham and beyond.

Well done to everyone involved!
