The trees have been planted along The Hangings as part of National Tree Week.

Harwich Peninsular Friends of the Earth have been planting the trees as part of their campaign to save and renew the Hangings.

Seven types of tree were planted and the rest of the project will be completed in the Spring.

This will see 420 trees planted. The trees were donated by the Woodland Trust.

Paul Preece, of FOE, said: “Seven types of trees are being planted which will all support wildlife throughout the year including bees.

“The rest of the planting will take place in the early spring.”

The FOE are looking for volunteers for more details visit harwichfoe.co.uk.
