We are the Woodland Trust - the UK's largest woodland conservation charity.
We're here to stand up for trees.
Because we all need trees. To live. To work. To play. To explore.
We want to see a UK rich in woods and trees, enjoyed and valued by everyone.
But we can't achieve our vision alone.
We need your help
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.
