Volunteers help Moor Trees to collect local seeds, to care for thousands of seedlings in our nurseries and to plant and maintain conservation woodland.
Tree planting takes place between November and April while nursery work – potting, planting and weeding seedlings happens throughout the year.
In summer we visit newly planted sites and in the autumn we collect seeds, nuts and acorns and learn various treatment methods to encourage germination.
Volunteers of all ages, abilities and cultures are welcome
We are a friendly group and volunteering with us is a wonderful opportunity to work with other enthusiastic people in beautiful settings, to get healthy exercise outdoors and to make new friends.
No previous experience is needed: we explain all the tasks and teach you how to do them.
We ask you to bring a packed lunch, sturdy footwear and outdoor clothing with waterproofs if necessary. Tea, biscuits, hot drinks and tools are provided free by us.
Sundays (All Day)
We work from 11.00 am – 4.30 pm and visit different sites each week.
A minibus service from Plymouth is available. This leaves from 89 Houndiscombe Road, which is left of the Baptist Church on Mutley Plain in Plymouth at 9.00 am.
Please text Brian Daniel on 07816 633455 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are planning to come on the bus.
