Replanting Uprooted Willow

This contractor is ensuring materials do not go to landfill by finding ways they can be repurposed. Willow and other shrubs were removed from site to allow for additional parking and construction.

Several community groups were approached to see if they could make use of the uprooted vegetation but there were no takers. They then offered them out to workers on site. One of the trades was in the process of setting up a hobby farm on a smallholding and took the willow to create a hedge.

The willow was stored in manure over the winter and then sited along a fence line for vertical grazing, as it is a natural anti-inflammatory that benefits the farm animals that were to be introduced when the enclosures were ready.
