YOUNGSTERS have been getting their hands mucky to help re-forest the countryside.
Orwell Scouts teamed up with the Woodland Trust to plant 2,000 trees at Church Farm, Great Eversden at the weekend.
Chris Ward from Cambridgeshire Scouts said: "This is a very popular project with young people and clearly demonstrates how much they all care about their environment."
The Scouts planted native broadleaved trees on the 8.4 acre site as part of the Woodland Trust's Tree For All Campaign, which aims to involve one million children in planting 12 million trees.
