Policy & influence
The future is looking brighter for Scotland’s woods after an amendment to the Planning Bill was passed on 20 June.
On 26 June, hundreds of our supporters joined us in Westminster at a mass lobby to demand action on climate change and strong environmental laws.
Hundreds of you responded to the consultation on Scotland's Forestry Strategy 2019-2029. Together, we’ve improved the outlook for Scotland’s valuable woods.
Whatever the coming weeks may hold, it's clear that nature doesn't respect political and national boundaries and no one voted for a poorer environment.
We’re working with the Royal Town Planning Institute to help planners understand the value of ancient woods and trees and how they can help.
A review of Network Rail's lineside management has eased our earlier concerns. But we’ll be keeping a close eye on progress to make sure our precious environment is given the care and respect it deserves.
Councils are getting a bad reputation for managing urban trees, but it’s not always fair. Find out how Wrexham is demonstrating good practice, care and appreciation of its street trees.
