TV presenter Julia Bradbury is urging Surrey folk to recycle their cards to help plant thousands of trees across the UK.



For every 1,000 cards dropped in to M&S stores for recycling throughout January, the retailer will fund the Woodland Trust to plant a tree.

The charity has set an ambitious target to collect and recycle more than six million Christmas cards, which would mean more than 6,000 new trees in the ground.

If everyone in Surrey recycled just one card it would help the Woodland Trust to plant more than 1,000 trees.

Tree cover in the county is pretty healthy at over 24%, compared to the national average of 13%, but more trees are needed to keep it this way.

The Woodland Trust is currently creating England's first WWI Centenary Wood on the edge of Epsom Downs in Langley Vale.



200,000 native trees are being planted, including beech, rowan, hawthorn and oak and creating carpets of striking wildflowers.

The land will be transformed into a peaceful place with natural habitats for the little owl, dormice, and six pairs of lapwings that represent 17% of Surrey's population.
