As part of Mersey Forest’s Northern Forest project, Mersey Forest has teamed up with Liverpool City Council to add to the tree cover in some of our parks and Garston Park is one of the chosen ones. For more information please go to Mersey Forest website and see the article ambitious target of 50M trees branches out.
You will see some contractors have planted trees in the fenced off areas and have started to plant the trees along the central avenue, the trees are a mix of species, the ones down the middle are Lime, all the trees they have planted will be managed by Mersey Forest.
Please look out for the new planting. Unfortunately there are some tree haters who attack new trees we put in but they are a minority who don’t understand the benefits to humans and wildlife, we are making our contribution to climate change melioration
