We are all encouraged to plant a tree for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year. These can go into the ground before mid-March or in the Autumn.

Every garden has space for a tree. Perhaps for beauty, for fresh fruit, for wildlife, for shade to sit under in our hotter summers, or to conceal the ugly shed next door.

Almost every government and non-governmental body promotes tree planting to suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, and that’s brilliant IF the tree is in the right place and will grow to maturity.

And if you really don’t have room, consider planting one with a community group.  Please contact nature@readingcan.org.uk for opportunities.
