Planting day at New Longton All Saints’ C of E Primary School, Preston
New Longton School in Preston was visited by representatives of NST to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of NST planted the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. The trees are all native British species, grown in the UK and include Dog Rose, Hazel, Rowan, Crab Apple and Silver Birch.
These new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live.
NST has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. NST is sponsoring the planting of more than 300 trees at New Longton, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
