Our six priorities for UK parliament

The challenges facing the natural environment are very real and are heavily bound up with our leaving the European Union. With this in mind, the Woodland Trust has rewritten its 6 priorities for 2017 UK Parliament to reflect the new context within which we find ourselves.

Our priorities range from ensuring that EU environmental laws and principles are fully transposed into UK law and implemented, through to ensuring that we take the opportunity of Brexit to fashion a new land use policy for the UK which really takes advantage of the benefits of woods and trees. They also call once more for overdue action on ancient woodland protection and for an end to woeful planting rates.
