Despite being over 100 years ago, the First World War is still one of the most talked about historical events in history and one that has affected 90% of the UK population and overseas.
The 4th August 2014, marked the 100 years since World War 1 started and it lasted until 11th November, 1918. The Woodlands Trust will be marking the 100 year birthday of World War 1 by allowing people to plant trees in a secured plot of land as a memorial to their loved ones who fought in the war. There will be four new woods developed across the UK, one in each of the British countries, which will provide a living memorial to the World War 1 military. England will be home to 200,000 trees, Northern Ireland will have 40,000 new trees planted, 50,000 in Scotland and in Wales, they will welcome 90,000 trees.
We think this is a marvellous idea and we’ll be more than happy to send our very own Manchester tree surgeon out to help maintain the War memorial trees and ensure that they are kept in pristine condition and lead a strong and healthy life for years to come.
If there’s a tree that needs our expertise and magic touch to help keep it maintained, just get in touch with Myers Tree Care today and we’ll send out one of our Manchester tree surgeons. You can find all of our details on our contact page.
