One million trees planted in February

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

The Woodland Trust have announced that they have reached their target of planting one million trees in February to start their year of tree planting for the Jubilee. But this is just the start - they plan to plant a total of 6 million trees this year to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.

The aim is to create hundreds of Jubilee Woods and 60 special Diamond Woods right across the UK. This will transform our landscape in a generation and provide a lasting and meaningful tribute available for all to enjoy for many years to come.

The Trust’s national flagship Diamond Wood is located in the heart of The National Forest in Leicestershire. At around 460 acres this diverse landscape is ripe for woodland creation; dense hedgerows run across the land forming natural wildlife corridors, and to the east a lake provides habitat for assorted wetland species and wading birds. At the heart of the site pebbled paths lead to a rare surviving fragment of ancient woodland - it will be a haven for wildlife and a wonderful place open for all to enjoy.

Neighbourhoods, communities, schools and families will be planting thousands of individual trees in their gardens, playgrounds and community spaces. Schools and community groups can apply for free tree packs to help local people get involved in the celebration.

Meg commented:

“I think it’s great that the Woodland Trust managed to plant one million trees during February, as they grow it will make a positive difference to our landscape. Trees are a wonderful addition to any area, bringing colour and shade, and when the right species are planted they attract all sorts of wildlife.

As a member of the Woodland Trust for some years I’m very pleased with their project to plant a total of 6 million trees across the UK. There’s bound to be a wood near bye to stroll in and forget your cares.”

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading charity championing native woods and trees. It was established in 1972 and now has over 1,000 woods in its care covering approximately 20,000 hectares (50,000 acres). Access to all Woodland Trust sites is free.
