On Friday I helped plant five new trees in Speke provided by the National Trust as part of their “Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy” project.
More than 500 MPs have chosen to take part in this effort to increase the number of tress in the UK. The idea was proposed by Commonwealth countries wanting to harness their collective expertise and resources to protect the world’s forests.
The National Trust provided me with five saplings, a Hazel, two Silver Birches and two Rowans. I donated them to Grow Speke who work with South Liverpool Housing to turn wasteland into a beautiful community Garden.
Hopefully the trees I planted will grow to become a well loved fixture in the local community and go some way to helping the environment.
