A new Northern Forest, policy paper

We want to plant 50 million trees, across a generation and across the North of England. Here's why.

The Northern Forest will cover an area of 13 million people. Woodland cover in this region is currently just 7.6%, well below Europe’s average. Our plan to plant 50 million trees will transform this landscape to make it more resilient, beautiful and prosperous.
