When 2020 began, I'd just started as chief executive of the Woodland Trust, and it's fair to say it's been an extraordinary year.
With Covid hitting, we had to shut our offices, we had to cancel our events, and we also had to ask our volunteers to down tools.
We were also hit by a cyber-attack which knocked out many of our systems, which meant communicating with our members was tricky.
But throughout all that we've made a real difference standing up for woods and trees. I'm really proud of the fact that we've invested more money in the cause this year than ever before.
It's helped us to establish an Emergency Tree Fund, £3 million to green up urban areas for people and nature. We've also acquired £6 million worth of new land for planting new trees but also protecting existing woodland.
But perhaps proudest of all is that we've enabled communities and schools to make their difference. Millions of trees have now established as a result of school children and communities putting their shoulder to the wheel with us to help tackle the nature and climate crisis.
We simply couldn't do it without them, and we couldn't do it without you. So thank you for your support and I look forward to the rest of the decade being the most impactful for woods and trees.
