Get involved! Join Jersey Trees for Life for an open volunteering session of tree care at Val de la Mare on the first Friday of every month. If you're interested in tree care, or just fancy getting out into the fresh air for a few hours' gentle exercise on an autumn or winter morning, we'd love you to join us.

More Information

You can sign up by clicking 'website' if you're interested in attending one or more of the sessions taking place between now and 1 March 2024 (inclusive). We meet at 09:30 in the main car park at the top end of the Arboretum. Remember to look out for our extra sessions too.

The tree care activities that you'll undertake will depend on ongoing priorities but will generally entail the likes of mulching, path clearing and removing bracken, brambles and nettles, as well as watering.
