Hello to all our members and supporters. I've come here to my favourite oak tree. A stone's throw away from my Suffolk garden, in order to reflect upon 2019. And what a momentous year it was. Not only did the world wake up to the fact that we're facing a climate emergency and a nature crisis. But also through the work of the Woodland Trust began to recognise the role that woods and trees would play as a powerful tool and solution to both of those. Through your support we were able to make a massive impact. We saw 1.4 million new trees growing in the ground as a result. 2000 hectares of new woodland created. Ancient woodland restored and protected. As well as through the generousity of our supports the ability to bring in new site into our estate and safeguard them for generations to come. Sites like Ben Sheildaig in Scotland, or Ausewell in Devon, Brynau wood in Wales, and the Young People's Forest in Derbyshire. Each of these examples of places that will be special and are special for people and nature. Towards the end of the year, we engaged people like never before. Through Big Climate Fightback we saw 250,000 people step up and act in the fight against climate change. Across local communities, schools we provided free trees in order for them to make a material difference. We also saw lots of people take part in 'Plant a tree, Save the World', a Channel 5 programme that we did with Chris Packham, which had real resonance to millions of people. It was great to see so many people engaging ion woods and trees. Now 2020 has been a very different year, as we all know. But there are some things which are constant and things that I can say for certain. I know that our woods and trees are special places for people and nature, and the will be in 2020 as they were in 2019, and for years to come. I know the passion and the expertise of the Woodland Trust staff, our volunteers, and our supporters will mean that we continue to make a positive impact. But I also know that we couldn't do that without your support. So, thank you for continuing to support the Trust and helping us, with you, make a difference for generations to come. Thank you.

Our work is only possible thanks to the people who support us as members, or give donations, their time or voice.

Because of you, we're able to plant and protect trees and woods across the UK, for people, wildlife and the environment.

2019 was an amazing year for trees and woods. Read our full annual review.

We can't wait to see what we can achieve together in the future. Thank you.
