Rolling Stones guitarist fights global warming


To try and combat the greenhouse effect, Stones guitarslinger Ronnie Wood is creating his very own forest.

Wood, instead of falling out of a tree like fellow band member Keith Richards did earlier this year, has instead been busy planting trees in the ingeniously-named ‘Ronnie Wood Wood’, in civil war-torn Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park.

The Rolling Stone has teamed up with The Carbon Neutral Company to plant a new forest and everyone is encouraged to help restore the site which is currently under threat by growing population shifts in the country.

Everyone who helps plant trees in the forest – tree saplings cost £17.50 – will receive a certificate of ownership designed by the rocker, who is also an acclaimed artist.
