Britain's woodlands occupy much less land than other European countries and our woods and trees are under threat - whether from development, from poor management or from simply not understanding the vital role that trees play in our lives - as witnessed by the recent large-scale felling of city trees in Sheffield. Trees and woods offer great potential to rebuilding our wider relationship with nature, reinforcing local identity and sustaining wildlife. There is a need to plant millions of trees to lock up carbon to ameliorate the effects of climate change, to help shade our towns and cities and bring shelter and beauty to places.Author:
