Emergency Tree Plan cover

How to increase tree cover and address the nature and climate emergency.

In the 2019 general election every major political party backed the necessary increase in woods and trees in response to the climate and nature crisis. 

Our Emergency Tree Plan sets out key recommendations for national and local governments across the UK to:

  • Look after the trees we have
  • Create new policies, capacity and funding for woods and trees
  • Take local authority action to identify land for trees and increase canopy cover.
