Environmental Project

David Witter's Environmental project to help Goxhill Parish Council plant a shelter belt of trees for the extension to the cemetery on Horsegate Field Road.

Planting of a shelter belt of trees

The planting scheme that David devised in conjunction with Henley's Nurseries of Market Weighton involved a mix of Sycamore, Rowan, Whitebeam, Italian Alder, Larch, Silver Birch and Pine. All were selected taking into account the exposed position and often strong winds that affect the area.


A very big thank you should go to David for the planning and execution of this project, which has seen 200 trees planted. The planting was carried out by Members of Barton Rotary Club, members of Goxhill Parish Council and volunteers
