‘Growing the Future’: Trust launches its general election manifesto

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Woodland Trust’s manifesto for the general election. 

More woods are essential and offer genuine value for money

We are asking for all political parties to adopt a target of doubling native woodland cover in the UK over the next fifty years, bringing together the public, private and voluntary sectors to make this a reality. 

Creating new native woods and planting trees is a priority if we are to tackle challenges such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, wildlife loss, improving public health – both physical and mental – and shaping places where people want to live, work and spend their leisure time. 

YOU can help. Please show your support for us – visit our website where you will find suggested text for a message you can send directly to your local candidates, using our new online tool. When your candidates call to discuss the general election, you might also wish to ask them about any commitment they have made to working for the expansion of native woodland and tree cover.

Together we can push native woodland creation onto the political landscape and help safeguard the natural environment for future generations. 


Please invite all your local candidates to support more native woodland creation.

    Thank you Dave! I hope you can contact your candidates and help us to make sure woods and trees are given the priority they deserve…

    I’m glad I found this… I’ll certainly be letting my local mp’s know about the woodland trust manifesto.

    Keep up the good work! Dave Corran
