Trees are being given away free of charge by Exmouth Rotary next weekend for people to collect and plant in their gardens. 

The initiative is part of a Devon Wildlife Trust Saving Devon’s Treescapes project, planting 250,000 trees across the county to replace those lost to Ash Dieback. 

Exmouth Rotary will be giving out the trees in Phear Park on Saturday, November 27, between 9.30am and 12.30pm, as part of its work supporting the environment. 

The trees will be UK broadleaf species including crab apple, wild cherry, rowan and birch, and will come with a guide to planting and aftercare. They will be two to three years old, around 20cm to 60cm high, and will need to be planted within a few days of collection. 

Exmouth Rotary say they are pleased to offer local residents the opportunity to support the Devon Wildlife Trust project and ‘green up’ Exmouth.
