Trees. Our unsung heroes. Our urban observers. The life preservers. The givers, the takers, the generation makers. The wonder creators. Home to our pollinators. Big, small, urban, remote. Our oasis. Our sanctuary. Our escape.

The Woodland Trust plants trees and protects woods to create havens for wildlife all over the UK. With your help, we can do even more.

Support the Woodland Trust and your money can make a real difference for this and future generations. Preserve and protect British woods for the wildlife that lives there. Show you care and help us continue our vital work making our environment a better one for everyone.

Right now, woods and trees are in crisis – and that means thousands of rare and special species are in crisis too.

As the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, our mission to get millions of native trees in the ground, protect woods and create new woodland havens for wildlife has never been more important than it is today.

Join us to help plant trees. Join us to save woods under threat. And join us to to give nature a fighting chance.

Fight for their future – membership starts at just £4 a month.

Membership allows us to...

The loss of ancient woodland and hedgerows has had a serious impact on many of our woodland species including Bechstein’s bats and purple emperor butterflies. Hazel dormouse numbers have declined by a third since 2000. Ancient woodland covers a mere 2% of the UK so homes for these cute and increasingly rare rodents are scarce. We cannot replace ancient woodland that has been lost but, by becoming a member of the Woodland Trust, you can help us protect what is left.

Your membership will also help us plant trees which can grow into flourishing new woods in as little as 12 years. Since 1972 we have planted more than 43 million trees across the UK. These amazing new wildlife havens are already providing food and shelter for red squirrels, pine martens, beautiful jays and thousands more of our woodland favourites.

Join the Woodland Trust and help us care for and restore damaged woodland so we can help wildlife and native plants to thrive once again.

We own and look after more than 1,000 woods across the UK and we keep them open and free for everyone to enjoy.

Every member receives:

  • a welcome pack and membership card
  • our directory to more than 1,000 Woodland Trust woods
  • an identification guide to native trees and shrubs
  • four copies of Broadleaf magazine per year
  • a heartfelt welcome into a community of more than 250,000 like-minded members.
