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.

Big trees, small trees, old trees and new trees. The trees that stay green all year round, the trees that don’t and the trees with no choice – standing skeletons, bleached bark and leafless limbs.

A blog about a newly blossoming love affair with trees.

It comes in response to last weeks National Tree Week, where the Tree Council encourage communities across the country to plant, plant, plant. 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.
