Plant trees and grow history

People in Burnley are being given the chance to grow their own history by planting free trees to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

The Woodland 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.

Trees are available to schools and local groups, such as Scouts, Guides, sports clubs and parish councils, who can apply for a pack via the Woodland Trust website until September 4th. To apply, log onto or e-mail [email protected]
