Jeni Bell’s Seeking Wild Sights

The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..

For the love of trees

words  by Jeni Bell

I’d like to dedicate this blog post to trees.

Originally started in 1973 as a response to the fallout left behind from the Dutch Elm Disease epidemic of the 60’s. It has run every year since, and charities, schools, community groups and lots of others have got their hands dirty and become fully fledged tree planting advocates.
