I took my children to see the wood I played in every weekend as a child. They swung on the same rope swings and did all the things I used to do. Our family membership shows them how much fun woods can be, plus we're supporting the Woodland Trust who give everyone access to these amazing places.

Help us plant trees

We urgently need more trees to tackle the climate and nature emergency. With support from our members, we're planting new native trees with schools, communities and landowners for a healthier planet.
