Avon Heath shrub clearers get free Christmas trees
More than 100 volunteers are getting a free Christmas tree for helping to clear a Dorset park of invasive trees.
They are being asked to clear an excess of Scots pines growing in Avon Heath Country Park near Ringwood.
As a reward they get to choose one of the trees to take home as their own Christmas tree, free of charge.
Assistant ranger Marco Marsango said: "If you come out here to do a bit of conservation work it helps us cut the trees down and promotes the wildlife."
He said Sunday's one-day event had been very popular and was fully booked.
