Situation

Trees are vital for life - they improve our environment, provide habitats for wildlife and are places of reflection and play. Yet while many of our vital trees and woods are under threat from disease, damage or destruction, our children continue to loose their connection with nature. The Woodland Trust's aspiration to double the UK's native woodland cover remains crucial – we must continue to plant millions of trees now, for wildlife, people and our future.

Solution

Planting trees has the power to restore our landscape, breath life into our communities and inspire our children with a fresh love of nature and a determination to act on its behalf. With your help we will continue to foster a national tree planting movement through Jubilee Woods and give everyone the chance to reconnect with nature and plant the vital woods and trees our country needs - and most importantly help support our native woods and trees at a time of need.
