The trees, including Silver Birch and Hazel, have been donated by the Woodland Trust as part of a nationwide tree planting campaign  called The Big Climate Fightback which involves a mass planting of trees across the country, today, Saturday 30th November.

The Trust says trees combat climate change and biodiversity loss.
