Planting trees can be a great way to show where you live some
love. It's a fun thing to get involved with and the results are
instantly obvious. You also have the great satisfaction of seeing
your trees grow in the years to come.
You may find that your local council or other groups in your
area are organising tree-planting events for the public. Schools
and community groups will often get involved in planting as part of
educational and neighbourhood improvement projects - find out
what's happening where you live.
It doesn't have to be trees either - planting vegetables,
flowers and other plants all helps to make a neighbourhood feel a
little more loved.
If there aren't any events already planned in your area, why not
organise your own? If you do, always remember to get permission
from the landowner before you embark on any planting session.
