Pupils from St Bernadette Catholic Primary School have helped plant a trees at Napsbury Park.
As part of National Treet Week, Herts County Council’s Rural Estates Team were joined by the schoolchildren.
The team set about planting trees on a previously derelict area of eight acres.
4,000 trees of mixed broadleaf species such as oak and hornbeam are being planted there.
This is to provide a good habitat for ground nesting birds, especially skylarks, which have been spotted in the area.
The cost of planting the woodland is being covered by a Woodland Creation Grant Scheme with Natural England and the Forestry Commission.
