He'll be planting the first tree on a 157 acre site near Bere Regis which he wants to transform into a native woodland.

The green space was used for farming and was under threat of being built on for housing.

Locals will be able to join in with the planting during a community fun day which starts this afternoon at 2.30pm.

Its hoped around 600 trees will be planted today.

They'll also be a musical performance by local school children.
