Planting trees is always a bit of a gamble and the wet year had delayed their planting, which added to the risk they’d perish. Of course, it’s only the start of summer and they’re not out of the woods yet (dreadful pun, sorry) but what a great start they’ve had.
Thanks again, Bruce, Chris and David!
PS: I had to edit this – I meant 1200 trees, not 800! We were given 400 more at the last minute!
