We’re an active member of The Climate Coalition. As the voice for native woods and trees, we need to highlight:

  • the challenges they face from climate change
  • their role as part of the solution in managing its effects.

Climate change, woods and trees

Trees are our most powerful weapon in the fight against climate change. As well as capturing millions of tonnes of carbon a year, our woods and trees help to: 

  • prevent flooding 
  • reduce city temperatures 
  • reduce pollution 
  • keep soil nutrient-rich.

To fight the climate and nature crisis, we need to plant more treescreate more woodland and look after the woods and trees we already have. 

As a member of The Climate Coalition, we work together with a range of NGOs to call for a cleaner, greener world that works for everyone.

Great Big Green Week

We’re excited to be part of Great Big Green Week, a national week of events celebrating action on climate change. Taking place 18 – 26 September 2021, it will be the biggest event for climate and nature ever in the UK

A virtual lobby for a green recovery

On 30 June 2020, our staff and supporters were among more than 14,000 people in a virtual mass lobby of the Westminster Parliament. They asked MPs to put people, climate and nature at the heart of our nation’s recovery. 

Be part of the movement. Sign the Climate Coalition’s declaration pressing for Government to lead the UK towards a healthier, greener and fairer future.

Show the Love

Every year around Valentine’s Day, our friends at The Climate Coalition encourage us to show the love for the places, people, and life that we want to protect from climate change. You could plant a tree, send a green heart to your MP, or share a photo of a woodland you love on social media.
