30 Trees

New tree on Angel Hill

Tree planting on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds.

A new hornbeam tree was planted on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds this week.

Representatives from Bury in Bloom, the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Royal Artillery Association (Gunners) and St Edmundsbury Borough Council attended the planting on Thursday, November 30.

The hornbeam replaced a previous tree which had died last year and landscaping company Pro-Scape cleaned out the tree pit and filled with new compost.

Jos Bird, from the Gunners, approached Bury in Bloom to replace the tree and the town’s horticultural organisation paid for the tree and its installation as part of its 30 trees project to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Bob Ewington, secretary of the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Royal Artillery Association, said: “We are delighted the hornbeam has been replanted and would like to thank all involved.

“We will have a rededication of the tree in the spring when the new leaves are out.”

Residents prove they love where they live

Residents of Windmill Rise in Bury St Edmunds are pictured with their new tree which has been donated as part of the Love Where You Live scheme.

A tree has been planted in a square in Bury St Edmunds as part of an initiative to get people to take pride in their local community.

Earlier this week, residents of Windmill Rise became the first in the town to receive one of 30 trees donated under the “Love Where You Live” campaign, which aims to make a difference to the local environment.

Leaflets have been drop-ping through people’s letter boxes throughout the town, encouraging them to take part in the initiative which is part of the celebrations to mark 30 years of Bury In Bloom.

Communities were encouraged to apply for one of the 30 anniversary trees to be spread across Bury and the people of Windmill Rise were first to take delivery of theirs. Alan Jary, chairman of Bury in Bloom, said: “We are encouraging people to do the work and put a scheme together to brighten up their area of the town. The borough council will provide all the equipment they need for the work and give horticultural assistance.”

Anyone interested in being involved can contact Bury in Bloom or the council at www.westsuffolk.gov.uk/lwyl

As part of our 30 year celebrations we are offering 30 free trees to be spread right across the town. Bury in Bloom is not just for the town centre, but all areas of Bury St Edmunds. This can be one tree or a group of trees, so if you have an area that needs some improving, we are here to help. It's up to you. Locate your site, provide us with as many details as possible. Make sure you have some long term plans to maintain the project into the future. A tree isn't just for a season!

All events will need the landowner’s permission, so make sure you check. If you’re not sure who it is, we can help. We are fortunate in Bury St Edmunds that we have many attractive green spaces and we are keen to ensure everywhere is as pleasant, and loved, as it can be. You can join with others to make this happen in your area.

Drop us a email with as much information as possible on where you would like to see one of our trees around greater Bury st Edmunds and we will be in touch.
