The Welsh Government says it is "absolutely committed to supporting and funding tree planting" in Wales.
Could nature provide the solution to the devastating problem of flooding? One charity says simply planting trees could protect thousands of homes.
Coed Cadw - the Woodland Trust - is calling for the Welsh Government to plant 10 million trees over the next five years.
Coed Cadw (The Woodland Trust) is calling on the Welsh Assembly for 10 million trees to be planted over the next five years to reduce the risk of flooding in Wales.
Thousands of homes across the country have been affected by flooding after the recent stormy weather, with rivers bursting their banks and many people having to be evacuated from their homes as a result.
The charity says planting the trees will create hedges and tree belts which will help soak up the rainfall. However, some experts say that it would not have enough of an impact and that other methods should be looked at.
