Haddenham Junior School Celebrate National Tree Planting Week

A new Tia-Haku




Friday 25th November Haddenham Junior School Eco Warriors planted
a Great White Cherry (Tia-Haku) to celebrate National Tree Planting Week

12 children supervised by Headteacher Mr Leach and Haddenham and District Rotarian
and tree expert David Rankin planted the tree at the school entrance


The children dug the hole, positioned the tree and filled in around the tree with suitable soil

Two post were hammered in and the sapling fixed by ties to reduce movement while the root systems develop, and completed the installation with a wood chip mulch to retain moisture and discourage weeds

To commemorate the occasion a plaque was place at the base of the tree:

Great White Cherry
Planted by Children
In Memory of Queen Elizabeth II


The purchase and installation was proudly supported by Haddenham and District Rotary

The HJS tree should grow to become another fine example of Tia-Haku Cherry
such as this one at Batsford Arboretum
