Portavo Revisited

The old lungs have been invigorated by abundant fresh Ulster air this week. I spent the day at the National Trust's land beside Portavo again today. This land was bequeathed to the Trust by a gentleman in his will.

There were about two dozen of us and we managed to plant 1,500 trees, which totals 2,000 this week. There are another 5,000 to plant. The field was akin to a rugger pitch today, abounding in mud. Nevertheless, the ash trees will thrive here, complemented by oak at a lower level; interspersed with  a mixture of other varieties.

Lovely to hear that some are taking such an interest in the planting of trees.
