An author from St Albans has pledged to plant a tree for every person who buys his new book Canopy Harvest.

Woody Hayday, who was brought up in the city, has bought a plot in Wales to plant the trees.

He said: “I’m very concerned about global warming and environmental stability.

“I thought it would be brilliant to give something back to the planet when I launched my novel, and so I have grown more than 250 saplings and plan to use them to create a forest of fruit and nut trees.”

Woody, who attended Oaklands College, promises anyone who buys a copy before Friday, April 7 will have a tree dedicated to them.

He has said he is looking at buying another plot in Herts to plant trees for when his next book comes out.

Canopy Harvest, is out tomorrow (Thursday).
