Primary Schools in Mid Derbyshire are being offered the chance to plant free trees with help from the Woodland Trust.

Schools are being offered the chance to connect with nature and improve their local area by planting trees – for free.

Children can look forward to planting a copse (small group of trees) or hedge, which can provide a wild harvest, or a burst of year round colour.

Beccy Speight, chief executive of The Woodland Trust said: “It’s vitally important children get the chance to plant a tree. We know from our research it’s a memory they’ll treasure for years to come.”

Tree packs available from woodlandtrust.org.uk closing date is September 9, for delivery in November.
