Aren't they wonderful, nature at its best.

I saw a programme where one of the most polluted schools in the country, they planted 17 trees around the edge and reduced traffic pollution by 25%.

How brilliant is that.

Now I am thinking of planting a nice tree in the garden, it's a big garden, not near the house so was thinking of a rowan, crab apple or silver birch. I planted an Oak tree 2 years ago it's grown a bit. Must be a native tree, planted a hedge 3 years ago and it's doing great, hawthorn, blackthorn, hazel, dog rose etc.

Need quite a big specimen I think but largish ones are not cheap.

Anybody planted a tree?

In our small- ish back garden we have planted an apple tree, a plum tree, both which produce plenty of fruit, and a cherry tree which so far is struggling but slowly growing. My wife is a member of the Woodland Trust and was given a Rowan tree sapling at the recent motorhome show. It's still in its pot and will be planted next year. She is also a member of the village conservation group and helps to plant flowers and saplings around the village.
