National Tree Week
29 November 2014 10:00 - 07 December 2014 16:00
Trees have been in
existence on the Earth for 370 million years. Trees and forests,
they create provide a habitat for many species of animals and
plants. They provide shade and shelter, timber for construction,
fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having
many other uses.
First mounted in 1975, National Tree Week is the UK's largest
