Thanks to a Woodland Trust donation and the joint effort of the Stratford Rotary Club and UEL staff, we now have a mini woodland at UEL. Several of us enjoyed a day out in the winter sun and fresh air to plant our little trees. Passers-by joined in the fun to plant their own tree too. Our woodland consists of 190 native woodland trees including rowan, silver birch, downy birch, hawthorn and blackthorn.

We selected a prominent location, next to the main car park at Docklands campus. UEL staff, students and DLR travellers alike will enjoy the leafy view for years to come. We are in the process of getting a celebratory sign for the area, so look out for it when you are next in our woodland.
