Growing the Big Trees for the future

We in ADAS are please to report that once again we have secured the Big Tree for the Square.

Each year we face the concern of obtaining it from the local plantation as the owners are extremely generous in allowing us to harvest one at a very good price.

This year we will fell the chosen tree on the 24th November in readiness for the Big Switch On of the lights display on the 29th . 

With the willing help of Richard Furber and Jonathan Gleave we will have it in place. Then begins the hard work. 

As seen in the photo, we are planning ahead for the year 2028 and beyond by planting young firs in land set aside by very wonderful people in Coxbank, Audlem and as far afield as Blakenhall.  

These trees will then be of a size tall enough for our use into the 2030's. All I have to do is stay alive as long as possible to see them in place!
