National Tree Week (25 Nov to 3 December) is a time to give thanks for trees. Beautiful, often majestic, the very essence of nature, trees do, of course, serve many useful purposes too. They absorb CO2 and they give us wood which we can build with and make things from. So this week plant a tree, take a walk in the woods or donate to a charity that will plant trees in parts of the world that need them. Pictured above: a tree in Wales photographed by Tracey Williams

First launched in 1975, National Tree Week is the UK's largest tree celebration and marks the start of the winter planting season.
 
National Tree Week aims to encourage communities to do something positive for their local treescape. Each year around a quarter of a million people get together to plant around a million trees in the UK, trees that are environment desperately needs. And this year the organisers hope that number of trees planted can be exceeded.

For those who think they don't have space to plant a tree, remember dwarf fruit trees are a great idea because they grow in pots. And for small gardens, some acers remain very diminutive.
