Woodland Trust: The Recommendations Are In! Panel Report Published Today

The recommendations are in! The Independent Panel on Forestry published its final report today. Our Chief Executive, Sue Holden, has made a short film to explain more about what's happening:

The headlines...
  • We're pleased to see that the report includes a challenging target around creating new woodland, and that there's potential to secure the restoration and better protection of ancient woodland.
  • We fully support the continued role of the public forest estate so are pleased that the Panel also champions this.
  • The report does not advocate mass sell-off of the estate, something you opposed with us last year along with so many others.
Here's the state of play for woods and trees in England;
