‘There’s nothing better than a tree!’ says Dallas star

The actress, who played Sue Ellen Ewing in the popular TV soap, has a long history of supporting environmental campaigns and believes that planting trees is a vital investment for our future. ‘We need to consider our grandchildren and my concerns are for them,’ said Linda.

‘Trees balance out all the concrete present in our cities, provide oxygen and are beautiful. The idea of planting a thousand as part of the celebrations is divine!’

Linda, who has been appearing at The Everyman Theatre in the touring production of ‘Terms of Endearment’, has also recently starred on Broadway in the stage production of ‘The Graduate’, playing ‘Mrs. Robinson’ to sell-out audiences and rave reviews.

As a lasting legacy of the millennium celebrations, the ‘1000 Trees’ campaign is inviting individuals and companies in the county to plant or sponsor a tree with the aim of planting a total of one thousand new trees across Gloucestershire.
Gloucestershire 1000 is also pleased to be working in partnership with The Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, to offer tree-planting advice to green fingered individuals or encourage companies to make donations toward the planting of new trees in the county.

Two ways of getting involved in the campaign make it easy to add to the grand total. Individuals can grab a spade and plant a tree in their back garden, even encouraging their children to enjoy the experience. Local businesses can also invest in a greener future by making a donation towards other community tree planting schemes taking place in Gloucestershire.

An information pack with details of how to make a donation is available on the website www.gloucestershire1000.org.uk and includes advice for anyone wanting to grab their wellies and plant a tree themselves. Anyone wanting to know more about 1000 Trees or sponsorship options can contact Laura Fleming on 01242 714863.
