Jubilee trees replanted after attempted theft leaves many damaged and uprooted

Dozens of trees have been replanted at a wood near Coventry that was attacked by vandals.

About 40 trees were stolen from Jubilee Wood in Keresley and many others were uprooted and damaged in late March.

The Scots pines were believed to have been specifically targeted to be sold, the parish council said.

Volunteers joined park rangers to plant replacement trees at the wood, which was only set up last year.

Corinne Muir, from Coventry City Council, said fellow park rangers and members of the parish council would be visiting the wood at nights to check the condition of trees.
