GREEN-FINGERED Scarborough youngsters have been planting trees to create a copse in their school grounds.
The children, who are members of Braeburn Infant and Nursery School gardening club, have joined forces with the Woodland Trust for the project.
It is part of the trust’s “More Trees, More Good” campaign - the largest tree-planting mission the UK has ever seen.
Launched in 2010, the project aims to facilitate the planting of 20 million native trees a year for the next 50 years.
Paul Bunton of the Woodland Trust said: “Even schools with quite small grounds will often be able to accommodate one of our hedge or copse packs.”
Bev Chapman, of gardening club, said: “The children really enjoyed planting the trees. They were excited to think that the trees will grow and one day their grandchildren might be playing under them.”
