Despite some rain and cooler temperatures during the week we were out watering again on Friday. This included the Memorial Wood between Flora Road and Bramble Road, the first time we have watered this as previously it had been watered by contractors from Braintree Council. The 50 plus trees were watered in around 30 minutes with about 20 litres each.
We then refilled the bowser and set off to water our other trees planted over the last 2 years to include Bramble Road play area, Spa Road, Trent Road area, Cuppers Close, Epping Way and the Recreation Ground.
With the trees we have planted and a few others we noticed struggling, this added up to around 100 trees, our greatest number so far. Next week we should be doing it all again.
