Seasonal Tasks

January – March

January – March

Tree planting at various sites around South Devon, with up to ,000 trees to be planted.

We will also be working in the nurseries on Tuesdays & Wednesdays – lifting trees and lining out seedlings.

April - July

April - July

Finalising any planting, and generally tidying away until next winter. Some previous planting sites will need a bit of TLC to ensure the trees are growing well.

Nursery beds will require digging and clearing ready for the next lot of seedlings.

This year we will be carrying out improvements to both main nurseries, including a new open barn at Dartington, and at both Broadley and Dartington poly tunnels, irrigation and rainwater harvesting systems, new raised areas for our cell grown trees plus additional upgrades, so we will be looking for DIY enthusiasts!

August - October

August - October

Seed gathering season. Various groups will be out in the countryside, picking and gathering berries and seeds. These will then need to be processed and stored suitably, or planted straight into the ground.

November - December

November - December

We will start planting once the trees are dormant, sometimes mid-November. Lots to plant this year at a range of sites so the more the merrier!
