The Forestry Commission starts a major tree planting initiative across North Yorkshire.

In an effort to replace trees that have been harvested for timber, to help broaden wildlife habitats and also making good loses sustained during storms in 2005, the Forestry Commission plans to plant 400,000 trees across North Yorkshire over the next four months.

The forest workers will hand-plant the 400,000 trees on 390 acres in Langdale Forest, near Pickering, Ingleby Greenhow, near Stokesley, Gilling, near Helmsley, Sneaton, near Whitby and Harwood Dale, north of Scarborough.
