Come along to Moseley Bog family tree planting and green woodworking day
Tuesday 20th March, 2012
After the sad removal of the oldest trees in Moseley Bog nature reserve due to fungal disease, the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country invites everyone to come and join us on Sunday March 25 for a tree planting and green woodworking day. Free to attend, there will be fun for all the family including the opportunity to help with the planting of large oak standards, green wood working activities using wood from the felled Beech tree, and a chance to meet the tree surgeon. It is also an opportunity to learn more about the management of the reserve and to keep a little piece of a great tree.
Moseley Bog Beech Tree a Sad Loss
Wednesday 7th March, 2012
One of the oldest trees in Moseley Bog nature reserve has a severe fungal disease which affects the base of the stem and its root system; this has weakened the trees trunk. Unfortunately the removal of the tree for public safety is inevitable and the tree will be felled on 16 & 17 March 2012.
