England Tree Strategy Consultation
We want England to have more trees and woodlands

Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched the England Tree Strategy consultation on Friday 19 June. The consultation will inform a new England Tree Strategy which will be published later this year.  The strategy will set out policy priorities to deliver an ambitious tree planting programme. It will focus on expanding, protecting and improving our woodlands, and how trees and woodland can connect people to nature, support the economy, combat climate change and recover biodiversity.  This will ensure that trees are established and managed for the many benefits they provide for people, the economy, the climate and nature itself.  

We are delighted to have been invited to tell our story, demonstrating the benefits that woodland creation can bring.
