Or just plant a tree.
In the last few years I've planted a dozen silver birches, a couple of rowans (I thought I'd lost one in last year's disastrous wet, but it has buds this spring), cherry, hazel and some evergreens - including this lovely yew that the nurseryman told me was a miniature but is now over six feet.
And an accidental oak that self-seeded from the tree at the top of the garden. My only regret is that I didn't start sooner and that I haven't planted more.
