The Woodland Trust is giving people in Lincolnshire the chance to grow their own history by planting free trees, as part of a national campaign to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
The Trust is giving away free trees to community groups and schools who not only want to create a lasting legacy for those involved in the war, but also improve their local area.
Mr John Tucker, the Woodland Trust’s woodland creation director, said: “We’ve already had a fantastic response to our campaign with 5,130 trees already being planted in Lincolnshire this year.
“I would urge anyone who would like to plant trees this autumn to apply as soon as they can so they don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.”
The Trust is encouraging people to organise tree planting events in their local area as part of its First World War centenary woods campaign that aims to see millions of trees planted across the UK.
Packs will be delivered in November containing native, UK-grown saplings.
There are a number of different pack sizes to choose from, and come in eight different themes depending on where and why they are being planted. Applications are open via the Woodland Trust’s website until September 4, 2014.
