Andover Trees United have been planting trees in the land between Endeavour School and Enham Alamein. The land has been made available to Hampshire County Council by Trinley Estates, and a section of it has been handed over to Andover Trees United. During the week, children from local schools have been taking part in the planting sessions which are part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in Andover.

"All credit to Wendy Davis and her team in driving this project forward, and it was good to meet the children from Knights Enham Junior School who were taking part in the planting the day that I visited the project. These trees will grow into Andover's Community Woodland, and there are some 1,100 whips to be transported and replanted by the 2,000 who initially planted up the nursery beds last year."

Andover Trees United won a CPRE Hampshire Countryside Award in September for the project which was described as "an inspirational project in linking generations of school-children with the countryside through their practical work of cultivating trees in their own woodland."
