The National Trust is planning to plant 20 million trees over the next decade as part of efforts to achieve net zero emissions by 2030.

The organisation made the announcement, which it says will cost £90m–100m, on Thursday to mark its 125th anniversary.

By the end of the decade, it says the new trees and natural regeneration of woods will cover more than 18,000 hectares (44,000 acres), an area one and a half times the size of Manchester. It will mean that 17% of the land the National Trust looks after will be wooded, up from 10%.

The focus will be on planting on farmland – including in upland areas – that the trust owns, rather than in country estates, but the director general, Hilary McGrady, said the National Trust would be working with farmers to deliver the targets.
