It’s time for us to stick up for trees

In 2017 the Woodland Trust will launch a Charter for Trees, Woods and People, a lasting legacy for the whole of the UK, leading more than 50 organisations in a call to define the charter. (Is SOA one of those organisations I wonder?)

“The charter will:

  • Help to unlock the potential of the UK’s trees and woods.
  • Improve our lives and landscapes.
  • Celebrate the trees in our lives.

Tell us your tree story. It could be about your favourite tree that you climbed as a child, or the sapling you planted in the garden of your first home. Maybe it’s a memory of the woods you always walked in with your family, or something you made with your own hands out of wood. We need your stories to help us understand what people want and need from the UK’s trees. Tell us what woods and trees mean to you. Share your story today.”
