More than 50 cross–sector organisations call for public support in safeguarding the future of the UK’s trees and woods.

November 2017 will be a historic moment for our trees and woods.  Eight hundred years after the 1217 Charter of the Forest re–established people’s rights to access and use the Royal Forests, a new charter will be launched to bring the value of trees back to the forefront of public consciousness and political decision–making.

Today’s charter, with the importance of trees and woodland still firmly at the core, will reach out to every corner of the UK.

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People will be a set of key principles, created by the public and organisations, guiding policy and practice throughout the country.

The campaign is led by the Woodland Trust, which chairs a steering group of 57 organisations representing forestry, conservation, community woodlands, local governance, faith groups, health and more.

Patrick Cregg is the director of the Woodland Trust and says: “Never before have so many diverse organisations come together to speak with one voice about the future of trees and woods. The fact that they have done so reflects the severity of the situation facing our woods today.  They are under real pressure, with planting rates at their lowest and the ever increasing threat of tree disease.  We need politicians and society to recognise the true value of this natural asset – and that means people of all backgrounds speaking up about how they feel trees enhance their lives.
