Jacob Severn, of Ingham, has so far planted 72 trees since December - more than half with his own hands - after collecting saplings he discovered or bought as well as some he asked for as Christmas presents. The Risby Primary School pupil has also donated his pocket money to tree planting schemes run by charities such as The Woodland Trust to help reach his total. Jacob said: "I am willing to pay for and plant the rest of the trees anywhere in the Bury St Edmunds area or wider Suffolk. If anyone can provide outdoor spaces for me to plant them such as schools, nursing home gardens etc that would be amazing.

I would love to support other charities and maybe make this an even bigger mission in the future. Jacob's mum Katie said he took action after becoming 'frustrated and bewildered' at the suffering and damage caused to the planet. Passionate about nature, during lockdown he ed his dad Paul, a photographer, for walks at Lackford Lakes where they enjoyed bird watching and taking pictures of wildlife.

He also visits his grandparents' farm to take care of the trees and has cultivated his own vegetable patch there. Jacob, who also plays golf, added: "Without trees we wouldn't be here. They support lots of eco-systems. Children see the result of all that - it's very hard for them to get their head around. Inevitably they're going to be the ones to have to sort it out.
