How you're helping to plant trees

Our ambition to plant and establish 20 million trees by 2030 is progressing at pace thanks to your support. After you helped us raise almost £500,000 through our plant a tree campaign, we've been able to plant thousands of young saplings across the UK. We've also identified sites for a further 1.5 million trees to be planted during the next two years. Watch the video to find out how you've supported tree planting at Conygree Farm on the Sherborne Park Estate in Gloucestershire.

New climate change hazard map 

We’ve developed a hazard map that illustrates the threat climate change poses to the places we care for. The map is the first of its kind and identifies six key hazard areas. Take a look at the map and discover some of the other ways we're tackling climate change.
