Hector Bellerin plants his first trees after Arsenal begin to win matchesjuillet 7, 2020
Hector Bellerin has been able to deliver on his promise after Arsenal‘s recent upturn in results.
Before the season restarted, Bellerin vowed to pledge that for every game the Gunners won he would plant 3,000 trees to help combat carbon emissions in partnership with global charity One Tree Planted.

However, things changed with a 2-0 win at Southampton on June 25 meaning Bellerin was able to begin to his cause.
And on Monday the right back got his hands dirty as he began planting some seeds.
Taking to Twitter he uploaded a picture of himself doing his part along with the caption: ‘First set of seeding taking place. Ready to go into the rainforests in November!’
Speaking about his cause last month, the right back told One Tree Planted’s website: ‘As a child growing up in Barcelona, I spent a lot of my time with my grandad in his garden planting trees and playing in forests so it’s an issue very close to my heart,’
‘When I saw the great work that One Tree Planted do, not just the planting of the trees but within the communities as well, I knew it was something that I wanted to get involved in.
‘I hope that by doing this and using my platform, others will see how important it is to look after our world and donate to a cause which really affects us all.’
Since that victory at St Mary’s, Arsenal have won their following three matches meaning that 12,000 trees will be planted as a direct result.
Bellerin will be hoping to make that 15,000 trees with another Gunners win when they host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
