PRIMARY school children are tending to their own saplings this winter as they prepare to take part in Trees for Life 2013.

It’s the fifth year of the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture’s initiative, which encourages primary pupils to learn about tree species, both in the classroom and while out and about.

Five types of native broadleaved tree are being distributed to schools by DEFA.
