As the UK's largest woodland conservation charity, we are the leading voice for woods and trees. We campaign to protect precious ancient woods, restore the ones that are damaged and fight for those under threat. We create new native woodland around the UK with the help of communities, schools, organisations and individuals.
We inspire people up and down the country to visit woods, plant trees, treasure wildlife, and enjoy the overwhelming benefits that woods and trees offer to our landscape and lives.
We campaign to protect woods that are under threat and purchase vulnerable woods to safeguard them.
We are restoring hundreds of devastated ancient woodlands, bringing them back from the brink.
We’ve created thousands of hectares of new native woodland including 250 community woods.
