Tree Planting

Wetheringsett Primary school took delivery of an Elm tree as part of the Great British Elm Experiment. This project hopes to reintroduce elm trees to replace those lost to Dutch Elm disease. These trees have been propagated from those that seemed resistant to the disease and the GBEE are asking that schools monitor the trees' progress for the next twenty years in order that they can pinpoint which trees have resistance and reintroduce the throughout the country
