Trees could be planted in more than four hundred places across Petersfield.

That’s the number of appropriate new sites for trees discovered by volunteers working with the Petersfield Society. 

Around thirty volunteers conducted a survey of tree planting sites across the summer. 

Now, surveyors say that four hundred and forty six sites are suitable for trees to be planted and a further five could benefit from reduced grass cutting.

Some of the locations are more than 200 square metres in size. Others could be home to just one tree each.

Andy Moffat is a trustee of the society. He spoke to Shine Radio’s Stephen Martin.
