Lancashire Park’s Ambitious Tree Plan Takes Root

An ambitious scheme to plant 10,000 native trees at Bay View holiday park in Bolton-le-Sands, Lancashire, has now been completed by its owners, The Holgate Family.

The last of the mixed saplings – representing two for every resident of nearby Carnforth – was placed in the soil over Easter at the popular coastal park located between Carnforth and Morecambe. 

Michael Holgate, says he hopes the newly created mini-woodlands will eventually provide a massive boost to the area’s biodiversity, similar to what Michael recently created  on the flagship Holgates Silverdale Park.

Bay View enjoys spectacular vistas across Morecambe Bay – but Michael points out that the park’s former use as grazing land meant that most trees had long ago disappeared.

The new plantings, he says, will help return the landscape to how it once looked centuries ago.
