Residents of award-winning Dundee development help deliver community woodland

RESIDENTS at Dykes of Gray village in Dundee have come together to plant over 400 trees as part of a community event in partnership with The Woodland Trust and housebuilder Springfield Properties.

The village, which recently won the Best Public Realm accolade at the UK-wide WhatHouse? Awards, is built by Springfield and has been designed to include everything a community needs to thrive including homes, a Spar shop, play parks, an amphitheatre, public art, and now – a community woodland.

The Woodland Trust donated 420 trees across 11 different species, with Springfield providing the land, commemorative medals and refreshments from Nicattos on the day of the planting to over 50 volunteers.
