More than 100 trees have been planted by volunteers near Caerphilly town.
Around 30 people turned up earlier this month to plant trees at Coed y Werin woodlands, near Caerphilly Business Park.
One hundred trees were donated by the Caerphilly Woodland Trust, with a further 50 donated by Draethen, Waterloo and Rudry Community Council.
Television presenter Iolo Williams was with the volunteers on the day and said: “The world is struggling to deal with the huge issues surrounding climate change which is deemed to be the biggest threat to humanity and its biological communities.
“Planting trees is a simple, low-cost option to remove large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere yet tree planting rates in Wales are currently woefully below target.
“By planting trees for the future and taking care of them to maturity our volunteers are making a tremendous difference. It’s the best form of carbon capture and storage that we have. Every tree planted in Coed y Werin really does count, as conserved woodland traps carbon that might otherwise be released into the atmosphere.”
Mr Williams added: “I’d like the congratulate and thank every volunteer who took part in the #BigClimateFightback because they are planting for the well-being of our future generations of humanity and our biological communities.”
Community councillor Jayne Garland, who helped organise the event, said: “We didn’t expect to plant 100 but because of the weather and the great turn out from the community we planted all our trees.”
Cllr Garland also explained that boulders were placed around the common in an attempt to stop fly-tipping.
“It’s a good way of tackling our carbon footprint and helping the community.”
