Tree planting on the floodplain

Tree planting on the floodplain

Back in December 2010 the National Trust, Environment Agency and Sussex Wildlife Trust spent the day planting trees on the floodplain of the Ouse. Around 0.5 Ha of mixed floodplain woodland trees including Black poplars were planted at Spring Farm by Sheffield Park to create this rare and rapidly declining habitat. The creation of the woodland will help reduce flooding downstream by reducing water flows and increasing water storage areas on the flood plain.
