‘Plant Britain’ campaign to plant 750,000 trees across the UK


There are some great projects to get young people doing things with trees:

Yesterday, a new project was launched – and pretty ambitious at that:

A campaign to plant 750,000 trees across the UK has been launched by the BBC’s Countryfile programme. The project is called ‘Plant Britain’ and it aims to inspire the nation to help protect the planet and fight against climate change. It will be running for two years and the goal is to plant 750,000 trees – one for every child in the UK who’s starting primary school this year.

John Craven, who was the first presenter on Newsround when we first broadcast on 4 April 1972, will discover a “micro-forest” close to his home. John also plants up a window box, to show people who might not have access to a garden or an outdoor space, that you can still do your bit at home.
