"Plant a tree, change the future and the future will thank you for it”

ENGLAND - A 4.2m pound scheme to plant one million trees over the next four years has been unveiled by the government.
It will see trees planted in urban areas of England that need them most, in the first government tree-planting campaign since the 1970s.
It aims to reverse declines in the rates in the number of trees being planted in towns and cities.
