The Work of the Woodland Trust

Sally Hepher – The Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading charity for native trees and woodland.  The talk introduces some species of native tree, looks at their past economic uses, moves on to the state of woodland in the UK today, why trees are important including their value to wildlife and broader role in the landscape, the special importance of ancient woods, and the work of the Trust in protecting, restoring and creating woodland and encouraging people to visit and enjoy their local woods.  Local woods of interest are mentioned, and Sally includes a bit about woodland management, plus tree diseases.
