The results of native woodland creation speak volumes


Broadleaf woodland absorbs and stores around 14.5 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per hectare per year


New native woodland can improve soils to reduce flood risk within 15 years of establishment


UK native oak trees may support up to 2300 species (326 of which are unique to oak)

The creation of new native woodland through natural colonisation or tree planting is a straightforward and tangible way to help tackle the climate emergency. If you would like to create new native woodland on your land there are a number of resources available and supportive organisations that can help you plan, fund, and implement your ideas.
