Key Elements Towards Success: 

Our vision is a UK rich in woods and trees, enjoyed and valued by everyone.

We aim to create new native woodland with the help of communities, schools, organisations and individuals. We try to protect our precious ancient woods, restore the ones that are damaged and fight for those under threat. We do this by inspiring people up and down the country to visit woods, plant trees, and enjoy the many benefits that woodland has to offer.

Challenges To Meet Them: 

We use our experience and authority in conservation to influence others who are in a position to improve the future of native woodland. We work with government, other landowners and like-minded organisations. We also campaign to protect and save ancient woodland from destructive development.

Length and Stage of Project: 

Established in 1972, the Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity.
