Whether you have told us about threats before or this is the first one you’ve reported, please tell us what you know. We can only fight for the woods and trees we know about.


Cases involving woods and trees under threat can change and evolve during the planning process for a variety of reasons. Where a development involving ancient woods or veteran trees no longer remains a threat due to changing circumstance surrounding said application and based upon professional judgement steered by our conservation research, the Woodland Trust withholds the right to withdraw or amend its objection and review its approach.

The Woodland Trust is not a statutory body. As a charity, we provide all information in good faith, funded by public donations. Find out more about how we are run.
