Reports of a mystery man seen in various parts of the province burying things in the ground in the dead of night sounded like a job for Special Branch to investigate. But we can reveal that this man has no criminal intent in mind, but rather wants to save this little part of the world by planting trees.

He reckons he has planted thousands - mainly apple trees and trees native to the Mourne Mountains, where he hopes to create a forest. As well as the positive environmental impact, he also uses the trees as a learning tool to educate his children on where food comes from. More could learn from his efforts to make Northern Ireland greener.
