From tiny acorns….

The Woodland Trust has announced plans to plant 850 acres of land to create the largest new continuous native woodland in England. This will make a huge difference to people and wildlife. Less than 12 percent of the UK is covered with woodland and only 2.4 percent of that is irreplaceable ancient woodland.

There’s been a huge amount of media coverage on it so unless you have been hiding yourself from the news you will have seen something about this – check out some of the links below:
