This page has been included to give updates about the trees planted and any wildlife that has subsequently been seen using them for food or shelter.

To help us monitor the progress of these trees please send in your wildlife sightings, photographs or any other updates to YACWAG using the Contacts Page and we will include them here.


  • 2012 Trees planted around the parishes of Yatton, Congresbury, Claverham and Cleeeve by YACWAG members

There is a tradition of marking important occasions with the planting of trees, so YACWAG thought the Queen's Diamond Jubilee was a great excuse for getting some trees planted!  The community helped with sponsorship and practical tree-planting. We were particularly pleased to have involved all three of our local primary schools.  

  • 2012 - 2015 Trees watered and cared for by various YACWAG members and local residents to ensure a good start
