The National Forest
For more than 25 years, we’ve been working with public, private, voluntary and community organisations to create The National Forest in the Midlands, UK. One of the boldest environmental regeneration projects in the world, we are truly transforming a scarred landscape from black to green. But the story doesn’t stop here. We believe that trees are the catalyst for transformation, not only of the landscape but of the economy and for our communities too. By continuing to grow the Forest, making it accessible to all and creating a woodland culture of passionate people who can engage with it, we can provide a lasting benefit for generations to come.
