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. 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 planting over the 2nd and 3rd April. This will be followed up by fencing the area off some time later. The trees are a mix of species. We have also been promised some planting to replace the central avenue which used to run across the park but this won’t happen until next autumn.
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.
