We took delivery of approx 400 trees/shrubs in "plugs" which we have started planting to provide wind breaks on the camping areas and to fill in where some of the initial trees/shrubs planted by WMDC before we took over the site have died. You can just make out the new plantings in the clear supports supplied with the tress/shrubs.
