Paul Jackson is an expert aborist who has brought his huge experience and expertise to his work on the trees at Wakelyns over many years.

“I am still on ‘a high’ from Paul’s wonderfully informative day on Sunday.  He is simply amazing, sharing his passion and rich knowledge.  And as for seeing more hares in one day than I have seen in a long-ish lifetime, I was over the moon. I shall be looking for an excuse for my 5th visit …! Henrietta’s lunch was brilliant and the ambiance out in ‘plein aire’ was just right.” Diana, June 2023

On a whole day Wakelyns tree walk, you’ll walk round with Paul, learning about what was planted, how it has grown and been managed, and what we’ve learned about the trees at Wakelyns. You will see and learn about how coppicing and pollarding have been part of the agroforestry system, how they have impacted on tree growth, and disease; and how to help tackle climate change.

You’ll have a fascinating day learning about and enjoying our lovely agroforestry landscape.

Each whole day walk includes a delicious Wakelyns Bakery Lunch.

Paul also does 1 hour taster walks available for booking as part of some of our community/open days.

Paul co-ordinated and led our tree planting day in January 2020 giving fascinating explanations of how the diverse range of trees at Wakelyns have responded to the agroforestry location, to the changing climate and do the way they have been managed over the years.

Each Tree Walk starts with coffee before you head off round Wakelyns with Paul giving you fascinating explanations what’s happening in our agroforestry tree lines and hedges. You’ll come back to the farmyard for lunch from Henrietta and her team at the Wakelyns Bakery and then head out again for more fun around the fields in the afternoon.

Cost is £50 per person, or £25 for people on low incomes. Morning coffee and lunch included.

If you don’t live locally, why not stay over in a Wakelyns Ley Alley Pod?
