Claims that tree planting reduces flooding

Woodland Trust says move 'could lower water run-off'

Planting more trees could reduce the pressure of flooding.

That's the belief of the Chairman of the Isle of Man Woodland Trust.

The local charity aims to help combat the effects of climate change, and lower carbon emissions.

More than twenty thousand trees have been planted since the organisation was launched in 2004.

Falk Horning says planting trees "could lower water run-off".
