Life's better with trees

A world without trees should be unimaginable, yet more than 400 UK ancient woods are under threat.

Woods are places of myth, magic and legend that have inspired us for generations. Deeply rooted in our folk and fairy tales, they set the stage for stories of adventure, transformation and magic.

They are also essential to our lives. They purify the air we breathe, protect us from flooding, provide fuel, food and medicines, and support some of our best-loved species.

But not all stories have a happily ever after. Our woods are in danger. Over the past 10 years more than 1,000 ancient woods in the UK have been threatened by development. If we don't act now our woodland landscape will change forever.

Life’s better with trees. Without them, it’s a different story.
