Douglas would be the preferred tree, but Both these plots won’t keep it standing. About a foot of soil then solid white clay below. Could be said that nothing quick growing will stand up.

western red cedar is another suggestion.

I would go with WR Cedar also. Scots Pine good ecologically and will grow on side of a jerry can 😉 A handful of oaks in there just to give diversity.

What’s a soil rip? I am guessing subsoiling?

 

both plots are surrounded by hard wood planting, so no lack of biodiversity.

Yup. Get yr local friendly farmer to sub soil site for you. Bit of lime on clay soils will make it crumble a bit also. K

Be aware of water pipes and underground BT cables though!

Now that's where the fun lies! K
