Sunday saw 300 trees planted within the Prescott Estate by a team of volunteers as part of Gloucestershire's Treescaping initiative.

These trees, guards and supports were provided by GCC to the BOC as part of the national Emergency Treescaping programme which has been setup by DEFRA to increase tree planting and natural regeneration in non-woodland areas. The fund is part of the Government’s Nature for Climate Fund and will directly contribute to achieving the UK's ambitious tree planting targets.
