Plant – 100,000 trees

How can one child’s idea change a country?
Here’s an example.
The 100,000th tree has been planted in time for National Tree Week. That’s one for every child born or adopted in Wales.  Here’s how it happened:

“The original idea for the scheme came from a Cardiff schoolgirl, Natalie Vaughan, 11 who wrote to her Assembly Member, Sue Essex, suggesting that planting a tree for every child born or adopted would be a good way to make young people think about their environment and the role they have in preserving it. The Welsh Assembly Government decided to run with the idea and it is now being delivered on their behalf by the Forestry Commission Wales and Coed Cadw (the Woodland Trust).”

Isn’t that great?
