Eadha Enterprises led a group of 10 green fingered P6 children from St Michael’s Primary School in Port Glasgow to plant 20 aspen trees at their local Woodhall Park as part of their John Muir Award.
The children learned all about aspen, its folklore, natural history, timber uses and its conservation. Aspen is Inverclyde’s “Panda” with only one remaining stand left in the wild in the district.
The children learned how aspen spreads by suckering to create clones. Trees belonging to two clones were supplied by Eadha for planting – one from Arran and the other from Carron Bridge.
