Our year 8 and 9 Young Tree Champions spent time learning about which species of trees we were lucky enough to receive in our tree pack. We explored a variety of books and websites to establish where our trees would be happiest and learn how to plant them to ensure they had the best start. Each tree was situated so there was plenty of room for growth. We learned all about root structures, appropriate fertilisers and how often they need would need watering. We arranged a rota to ensure trees are checked and watered regularly.
