New Project – Mourier Valley

Jersey Trees for Life will be planting a  new woodland in Le Mourier Valley this winter.

In conjunction with the “Birds on the Edge” project to help restore Jersey’s coastal habitats, a mix of native trees and shrubs will form an extension to existing woodland in the valley on the cotils north-east and west of the stream and reservoir.

The areas are presently overgrown with bracken, and planting conditions will be somewhat inhospitable, but it is hoped that eventually the area will provide habitat for resident and migrant birds, and the planting will inhibit further bracken growth and improve the richness of plant species.  Planting will be undertaken by the Jersey Trees for Life team assisted by groups of job-seekers and volunteers from corporate supporters.
