HALF an acre of new woodland will be planted this year.

The Woodland Trust has distributed 227 trees to Rutland as part of its jubilee woods project.

The Trust is aiming to plant one million trees in February, and six million trees throughout 2012, as part of the jubilee woods project to mark the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.

Two schools in Rutland have signed up to the scheme so far and will be planting 122 trees between them.

The rest are being sent to community groups.
