SaplingFree Trees. The Borough is giving away 5,000 free trees on a first come, first served basis. There will be 800 available at Broomhall Recreation Ground from December 8th until December 24th, 2014. To pick up a tree, along with a stake and a shrub guard, simply cut out the voucher on P.31 of the latest Around the Royal Borough newspaper and present it at the Rec. The tree species available are native, both to enhance the underlying character of the area and to benefit wildlife. The Borough has produced guidance on what species will do well on which soil type. Click on the map where your house is to find out. Further information about the offer can be found here.
