Woodland Trust to plant 12,000 trees through Christmas card recycling campaign

The Woodland Trust has launched its 2010 campaign to plant 12,000 native trees across the UK.

The Woodland Trust's tree planting campaign is now in its 13th year. It has so far recycled 659m cards and planted 155,000 trees across the UK.

The trust is encouraging people to take their Christmas cards to recycling bins in Marks & Spencer, WH Smith and TK Maxx, and the money raised will help the woodland conservation charity to plant 12,000 new native trees during 2010.

Donors can also choose which part of the country they want trees to be planted by going onto the trust's web site and pledging to recycle. Visit www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/cards.
