Don’t let ancient woodland disappear…
When it comes to protecting irreplaceable, precious ancient woodland, we believe planning policy is as useless as a chocolate teapot.
Ancient woodland is not fully protected in the UK and more than 1,000 hectares have been destroyed in the last decade.
Over 500 ancient woods are under threat right now from planning applications for development including golf courses, campsites, roads, houses, sports facilities and car parks.

We need better protection for all ancient woodland today. Before it’s too late!
General Election 2015 - get trees on the agenda
We believe aspiring MPs have a responsibility to act as stewards of trees and woods, to help protect and expand these valuable national assets for the future.
Be the voice trees and woods need in the general election debate - ask your candidates about their plans for the nation’s woodland, and make sure they understand trees and woods matter to you.
