Whether this is the first threat you’ve spotted or you are a regular Threat Reporter, please tell us what you know, it really will make a huge difference.
Cases involving woods and trees under threat can change and evolve during the planning process due to a wide variety of reasons. Where a development involving ancient woods or veteran trees no longer remains a threat due to changing circumstance surrounding said application and based upon professional judgement steered by our conservation research, the Woodland Trust withholds the right to withdraw or amend its objection and review its approach. The Woodland Trust is not a statutory body. As a charity, we provide all information in good faith, funded by public donations. For more information about this visit here.
