More than a dozen new trees have been planted at Beam Parklands, near Dagenham
More than a dozen new trees have been planted at Beam Parklands, near Dagenham, thanks to five enthusiastic volunteers who responded to a call to take part in the project ‘I Dig Trees’.
The trees were provided free by The Conservation Volunteers.
Community ranger Sonya Kavanagh said: “The volunteers were all new to tree planting so it’s great they all learnt a new skill. They all enjoyed being out in the fresh air and found the experience so rewarding, they’re keen to take part in our volunteer day again next year.”
The Beam Parklands, is just one of 50 sites across the UK owned and managed by the Land Trust charity. Volunteering is a great way to support your local community, get some fresh air and meet new people.

Many of us have a lot to thank the Land Trust and Green Angels projects for. I may not have got my new job without doing the Environmental Education course you facilitated and Grow Green Liverpool wouldn't have existed either. You've helped me to achieve something I've been trying to do for about 4 years now and I really appreciate that. Add to that the friendships we've formed too and that really is precious.
