TO boost our tree population and guard against the spread of ash dieback, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is calling on people to plant a wide range of trees for RHS Dig Together Day this weekend.
This month, garden societies affiliated with the RHS have been holding tree-planting events to promote their environmental benefits.
Dig Together Day, an annual celebration of the work of gardening clubs and societies, coincides with National Tree Week, which begins tomorrow and runs until next Sunday.
This festival is organised by The Tree Council to mark the launch of the winter tree-planting season.
