Councils need trees and woods to fight climate change
More than half of the UK’s 408 local authorities have declared a climate emergency. Planting more trees and protecting those they already have is key. We’re here to help.

Local authorities across England are at different stages in planning how to tackle the climate crisis in their area. Whatever stage they are at, we can help.
Trees must be part of the fight
Trees lock up carbon, fight flooding, reduce pollution, nurture wildlife and make landscapes more resilient. Local authorities must plant more trees and protect those they already have.
Our local authority campaign has now closed
We asked you to write to your council, encouraging them to talk to us about how they can respond to the climate crisis with trees.
Over 1,000 of you joined the call, and your voice has made a huge difference.
43 councils we haven't worked with before contacted us and are now looking at creating a plan for their area. This means we are working with a total of 182 local authorities in England to fight climate change using trees and woods.
Thank you for making a difference.
