Woodlands appeal

There’s wonder under the gold-flecked canopies of our woodlands. As well as a sanctuary for wildlife, trees clean our air and bring balance to our fragile landscape. Donate today and keep our woodlands breathing

Help our woodlands blossom

Trees are our natural armour in the battle against climate change, cleaning air and turning carbon dioxide into oxygen. But tree cover worldwide is falling at an alarming rate, causing woodland wildlife to lose their precious homes.

We want to do more to protect our woodlands and the animals that live there. That's why we've pledged to plant 20 million native trees across the nation in the next 10 years. You can help by donating today to keep our woodlands breathing.

Did you know?

  • We look after around 12 million trees across all the places in our care
  • A single tree can remove 1 tonne of carbon from our air over 40 years
  • Since 1970 41% of all woodland species have been in decline
