Policy & influence
This month the campaigns team has quite the fight on its hands, from a housing development threatening veteran trees to shocking news on HS2.
In the UK around 40,000 deaths a year are linked to air pollution. Trees in urban areas can improve air quality. You can help by getting involved in tree planting, and defending the trees we already have.
Thank you so much for your support on the NPPF consultation. You have helped us get this far - now the fight continues!
The Government has launched a consultation into setting up a new environmental watchdog once we leave the EU.
Ancient woods may be beautiful at this time of year but plenty of them are still under threat. Find out more about the campaigns team’s latest cases and successes this month.
Protection for ancient trees could be boosted after our meeting with the housing minister on the National Planning Policy Framework consultation.
