Trees and flood risk, position statement

Trees and woodland alone are unlikely to prevent all flooding in a given area, but they can play a vital role in reducing flood risk.

We work to promote the integration of trees alongside other natural flood risk management measures and as a complement to traditional flood risk management schemes.
