Our work with the Woodland Trust aims at planting new native woodland for wildlife, for you and your family to enjoy now and for generations to come.
Since 2013, the support of Nicky has enabled the Woodland Trust to :
- Plant a Grove at Heartwood Forest, England; the award winning Heartwood Forest is the biggest woodland creation site in England, it covers over 850 acres and will be home to 600,000 new trees, miles of footpaths and bridleways, wildflower meadows and open spaces. Every single tree will be planted by a volunteer.
- Plant a Grove at Lang Craigs, Scotland; named after the rocky outcrop which dominates the skyline above Dumbarton, Lang Craigs is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It’s home to 600 acres of sheltered glen, rolling hills and rugged moorland. The site was bought by The Woodland Trust Scotland in 2011. The final tree has now been planted, seeing a total of over 200,000 new native trees in the ground – over 10,000 of the trees, including oak, birch and Scots pine, were planted by locals and schoolchildren creating new native woodland for the benefit of wildlife and people.
- Help inspire communities, church groups, social groups and schools to come together to appreciate the outdoors and learn more about woods and wildlife; We’ve helped school children and community groups plant nearly 50,000 trees through the Woodland Trust’s unique school and community tree pack scheme.
- Help support local land owners in planting tens of thousand’s of trees through the WT’s MOREwoods scheme. Woodland is one of our richest habitats. Planting more woods and trees, particularly next to existing ancient woodland, will help create more spaces for wildlife and support their conservation.
