This issue of Wood Wise discusses the importance of natural regeneration for expanding tree and woodland cover in the UK. Natural regeneration – where trees grow from naturally dispersed seeds – can complement tree planting to create natural and carbon-rich landscapes of the future.

There are many benefits of natural regeneration, but also challenges – not least that funding and policy support is lacking.
