Wood Wise - trees for good
The spring 2020 issue of Wood Wise focuses on how trees can simultaneously tackle the climate and nature emergencies. Scientists at the forefront of applied research explain how many more trees we need to plant, why native trees are best, and how to make the most out of new woodland.
This knowledge is vital to inform decisions about how and where we expand tree cover to address the pressing need to take action against climate change and biodiversity declines.

Tree guards: our research into plastic-free alternatives
We've announced a bold new pledge in the war on waste: no more single-use plastic tree guards on our land from the end of 2021. The commitment puts us at the forefront of the movement to eradicate plastic from planting schemes UK-wide, and we are funding research to find viable alternatives.
