Children embrace Tree For All project
By Sophie Barley
STUDENTS across Scarbor-ough will be taking part in a pick and mix tree planting scheme which aims to create lasting woodland areas.
More than 3,500 trees will be planted across North Yorkshire this spring as part of the scheme and seven schools and nurseries in the Scar- borough area are taking part.
Schools had a choice of packs from hedge tree species, copse species or seeds.
The packs will see thousands of schools across the UK taking part in tree planting activities over the next two months.
The initiative is part of the Woodland Trust’s Tree for All campaign which was launched in September 2004. It is the largest children’s tree planting initiative in the UK.
The schoolchildren will help to create havens for thousands of species and woodland area for future generations to enjoy.
