Residents can once again have some free trees to grow thanks to Exmouth Town Council.
The council has announced the return of its free tree scheme, which allows residents to apply for up to six trees to plant in their gardens.
Silver birch, wild cherry, quickthorn, common oak, rowan, field maple and hazel trees are being made available, ready for planting in February 2014, and support stakes and rabbit guards can also be supplied.
The council says all the trees are grown in the UK from UK seeds, so there is no risk of spreading disease.
All trees must be planted in Exmouth.
Application forms can be downloaded from the Exmouth Town Council website, www.exmouth.gov.uk, or collected from the town hall in St Andrews Road.
Completed forms need to be handed into the town hall by January 20, 2014.
The number of trees is limited, and they are supplied on a first come first served basis.
