Tree Care Day

We invite you to participate in the care of some of the trees on the Sharpham Estate, on this gratifying day on the land.

Winter Tree Care day at Sharpham

You'll join our team of volunteers who lovingly look after the grounds - thought to have been landscaped by Capability Brown – and experience the beautiful Sharpham Estate at first hand.

We've been working to preserve that landscape, whilst ensuring that future planting works not only for our eyes and hearts, but for birdlife, insects and other animals.

Tree Care Day at Sharpham

This year we will focus on planting new trees to extend our orchard. We will also create tree-guards to protect the saplings and prevent deer, cattle or sheep from eating the bark of newly-planted trees, helping them to a better start.

The day will be led by Sharpham Gardener Bryony Middleton with support from Trust staff and volunteers.

Sharpham’s Tree Care Day is free and will take place on Sunday 10 February 2019, from 10am to 3.30pm.

 

 

What do I need and what will happen on the day?

Please bring your own working gloves, waterproofs and wear sensible clothes and sturdy footwear for working outdoors.

There will be a range of tasks to choose from: some heavy and some lighter. We will provide all the tools, so if you’re interested in getting involved just turn up on the day – no need to book.

We will supply a tasty soup round the campfire with spiced apple juice (sourced from Sharpham’s orchards) to keep volunteers warm and refreshed and as a thank-you for giving your time.

Tree Care Day at Sharpham

A member of staff will meet volunteers from 9.45am by the Sharpham coach yard at the back of Sharpham House to direct people to the orchard – please park in the car parking spaces nearby. The way will be signposted on the day if you are running late. There are some steep hills on the Estate, so please get in touch if you’ve got mobility issues.

The day is not suitable for very young children. Before you set out, check the website and our social media for announcements if the weather is terrible.
