A GROUP of volunteers has expanded its guerrilla gardening attack.

The NAMA to Nature group -- which includes actress Serena Brabazon -- sprang to life from the ruins of the Celtic Tiger and has taken a novel approach to the legacy of 600 ghost estates -- by planting trees.

Ms Brabazon, daughter of the Earl of Meath who owns Kilruddery House in Co Wicklow, and her friend Andrew Legge thought up the unique idea to breathe nature back into neglected areas.

Ms Brabazon and a number of other volunteers were in Cherrywood, Dublin, yesterday where they got to work planting yet more trees.
