.The Gaia Trust planted 420 native broadleaved trees over three days at Treraven Farm. The small trees are no bigger than 60 centimetres tall and are protected by tree tubes, but in a decade or so we hope they will be perhaps 150 centimetres tall and beginning to look like 'real trees'.
As they grow, the trees will provide habitat and food for a range of birds and insects, and will lock up carbon to help address the climate crisis. Our small woodland is part of a bigger 'Forest For Cornwall' that aims to plant 8000hectares of new woodland in Cornwall by 2030.
This project was supported by Tevi and the Woodland Trust
