The Woodland Trust and Furniture

It was a beautiful day to plant trees. Students and staff from Fife college planted over 300 Rowan, Blackthorn, Hazel, Cherry, Sweet Chestnut and Oaks in the hills near Kirkcaldy at Puddledub farm, Auchtertool.

The hard work and cold was interrupted only with a fleeting glimpse of a deer.
We still have about 200 trees more to settle into the ground, so there will be more tree planting before Spring.

Thank you to all the HND Furniture students for your hard work. Puddledub Farm for supplying the site and The Woodland Trust for gifting us 450 trees as part of their Centenary Woodland Programme. Fingers crossed they will all be successful and give us blast of autumn colour for years to come, supply a wonderful environment for wildlife and then timber for future craftspeople to make into things of beauty.
