JUBILEE TREES AT BATCHELORS FARM – to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Burgess Hill Town Council will plant six trees at Batchelors Farm, with financial assistance from West Sussex County Council. The new trees will be native species and will be planted in the autumn.
JUBILEE WOOD ON BURGESS HILL GREEN CRESCENT - new woodland has been created in Burgess Hill to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The new Jubilee Wood has been planted by Mid Sussex District Council and will form part of the Burgess Hill Green Crescent, protected land that runs along the north, west and south perimeter of the town.
The Jubilee Wood is just over half a hectare in size and comprises more than 500 trees. A variety of species have been planted including, Ash, Field Maple, Hornbeam, Hazel, Hawthorn, Spindle and Oak.
The trees have been planted as ‘whips’, small two to three-year old trees, that will mature in twenty to thirty years and eventually live to be hundreds of years old.
