School trees …..10,000 trees supplied by

Between 10th January and 29th February 2012, schools registered to the RHS Campaign for School Gardening can order a set of bare-root 40–60cm tree saplings for just £5.95 postage and packaging.
The five trees are wild cherry, crab apple, silver birch, common hornbeam and field maple. Each tree is native to the UK and has been chosen for its beauty and heritage.
The RHS Campaign for School Gardening launched in 2007 now has more than 14,500 schools and other organisations registered to it. The campaign encourages schools to develop gardens for use by their pupils as outdoor classrooms. The RHS believes that gardening not only teaches children about the environment and where food comes from but also the life skills of responsibility, resilience and readiness to learn.
Jacky Chave, RHS Strategic Schools Manager, said, “Gardening in schools is a fantastic way of engaging children in learning; not just in science but in every subject, from history to current affairs. We wanted to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012 in a way that was fitting and would leave a legacy for all.
The 10,000 trees kindly supplied by will do just that; providing enjoyment for generations to come, while also supporting local wildlife and ecosystems.”
