As the UK's largest woodland conservation charity, we want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife.
Our work supports wildlife, increases the resilience of our landscapes to challenges from climate change, development and pests and disease.
We’d like everyone to love and value woods and trees, to use them, enjoy them, be inspired by them and ultimately, keep them safe for the next generation.
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.
