Work continues to implement the Holland Park Woodland Management Plan and you can see where idverde’s Gerry Kelsey has led his teams of volunteers to plant hedging whips along the borders of the woodland enclosures. It is good to see planting in the park once again, and planting trees in carefully selected spaces will be next. The Woodland Trust says: “Trees are a powerful weapon in the fight against climate change, absorbing and locking up a staggering 213 million tonnes of carbon in UK woodlands. Yet the woods that we need so vitally are themselves impacted by climate change – spring now arrives on average 8.4 days earlier than the first part of the 20th century which means some wildlife is struggling to keep up. Woodland wildlife is already under immense pressure…” We must ensure that future generations can enjoy tranquil  green space in Holland Park.
