Paul, thanks for your comment. For many of us "reducing our CO2 footprint" is difficult. In my case I can buy green electricity but I have to use a car and fly.
Planting trees can be part of a long-term strategy, and the absorption of carbon can be considerable, especially within the first ten years of planting. Britain is relatively deforested and we have the opportunity of increasing our woodland. That woodland will regenerate if it is protected.
Clearly this campaign represents a very small measure against climate change, but I believe it is worthwhile.Simon Holledge, 15 years ago.
