The 18 species of native broadleaf trees and shrubs shown above are the ones we will be planting on our own land later this year as part of the Colchester Woodland & Biodiversity Project. If you would like some of these plants either to plant out on your own land or to hand out to your residents for them to take home for their own garden, please indicate on the form which trees or shrubs you would like us to provide for you, and in what quantity. All plants will be supplied as bare-root whips measuring 40cms - 60cms in size apart from the Hollys which have been container grown but should be of a similar size on delivery. Unless you tell us that you do not need them your plants will come with a bamboo cane for support and a fully biodegradeable spiral guard for protection. These will help to keep the young plants upright and safe from winter frosts and snow and from being nibbled by rabbits!
Please use the form to indicate your requirements. The Parish Council will submit the final list to Colchester Borough Council.
