We are the Woodland Trust.
We want to see a UK rich in woods and trees.
Here's how we're making that a reality.
We plant woods and trees to combat climate change, build a greener future for the UK and create havens for wildlife.
We bring damaged ancient woods back to life. We restore these irreplaceable ecosystems so wildlife can thrive once again.
We save woods and trees from decimation. We stand against needless destruction and lead the fight against tree pests and diseases.
We care for over 1,000 woods, keeping them open for you to explore and enjoy. We want to inspire a love for woods and trees for generations to come.
All our work, whether policy or practice, is based on evidence and decades of experience.
State of UK woods and trees
The State of the UK’s Woods and Trees report focuses on the UK's native woods and trees. It outlines their current extent, condition and wildlife value, benefits, threats and what is being done to help them.

We work to influence government and policymakers to secure stronger protection for our valued woods and trees.
We're creating bigger, richer, better, more resilient landscapes for nature and people.
