Volunteers helped to plant around 400 trees for Wood RecyclAbility.

Following an appeal on social media a number of volunteers turned up to help plant the trees to create an orchard at Wood RecyclAbility's Pitmedden site.

With the sun shining down, helpers worked to plant the orchard which will provide new opportunities for trainees as well as an additional revenue stream for the organisation through the sale of the fruits which are grown.

Taking to social media again after the last trees were planted, a Wood RecyclAbility spokesperson said: "It's a beautiful sunny day here at Wood RecyclAbility for planting the apple orchard.

"Many, many thanks to everyone who came along to lend a hand - your support is very much appreciated.

"Approximately 400 apple trees were planted today - woohoo!"
