70 Yew In One Day

The 100 Yew trees, Taxus baccata, arrived last week, so now it's time to plant them. Ali, Simon, Graham and Joe started by digging out a trench along the new path and half filling it with leaf mould.
The trees were then lined up along the trench, making sure they were positioned correctly and to make sure we had enough trees for the job. Splitting into two teams, each tree was planted and heeled in, gradually forming a new young hedge.
By the end of the day 70 Yews had been planted along the length of the path.
