On the ball… hundreds of trees for football ground

OVER hundred trees will be planted around the Ball Range football ground at Enniskillen’s Coa Road as part of an new environmental initiative. 
On Wednesday last a number of pupils from Devenish College, Mount Lourdes Grammar School, Enniskillen Integrated College and St Michael’s Grammar School came together to plant a variety of saplings as part of a joint project between Enniskillen Rangers Football Club and the Woodland Trust. The latest tree planting project is part of a scheme which will see around 40,000 trees planted throughout the UK.  Oak, blackthorn, holly and dogwood saplings were all planted along the boundary fence between Enniskillen Rangers Football Club and the neighbouring farmland. In time the trees will grow to provide a colourful backdrop to the pitch side as well as creating food for wildlife. 
The pupils will continue to learn about the work of the Woodland Trust and the environmental impact that their work will have in the area.
