Why do Local Wildlife Sites matter?

Project 1 – Tree Planting

Our first project is to plant 25 trees native to Cheshire along the wide grass verge on Alsager Road next to the Hassall Parish Council Notice Boards.

The trees have been planted as part of Hassall Parish Council Helping the environment initiative. Our aim is to create a more attractive environment for all; the planting will also improve the overall environmental quality.

We have engaged with land owners and spoke to other local councils who are also working on improving their local parish and town environments. We have also seeked specialist advice from experienced horticulturists regarding the species of trees which will grow well on this particular land and that will also not grow out of control and interfere with the cables above. Hassall Parish Council is looking to improve Hassall and this is one of our activities. We want to encourage the wildlife back into Hassall and not be scared of the busy nearby roads and new housing developments.

The trees will be maintained by the Parish Council, If you would like to join the Councillors as volunteers improving Hassall,
