Before Parliament closed for the summer recess Peter Luff MP hosted a reception on behalf of the Woodland Trust celebrating woodland creation in the UK. A film of the day is now available for you to view.

During the reception the Trust launched its woodland creation manifesto and the Forestry Minister Huw Irranca-Davies MP dropped in to announce that the Government’s Low Carbon Transition Plan supports a drive to create 10, 000 hectares of woodland per annum for 15 years to remove 50 millions tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2050.

Let us hope we can build on this great start. It now needs political will, money – both public and private – land, and public enthusiasm. By working together in partnership we can make it happen and push woodland creation onto the political landscape.
