Toptree Initiative - Paper makes trees. Planting trees in UK woodland


The Woodland Trust

Since the 1930's the UK has lost over 50% of its ancient woodland, our rarest and most precious habitat, and is one of the least wooded countries in Europe.

The Trust, started in 1972, now protects and cares for more than 1,100 woods across the UK and also creates new woodland, currently planting approximately a million trees a year for people and wildlife.  It is now the UK's leading woodland conservation charity with over 300,000 members and supporters.  Trees and forests are crucial to life on our planet as they generate oxygen, play host to a spectacular variety of wildlife and offer us tranquil places to visit and refresh our souls.

Where to see Toptree trees

Nine Toptree Groves and one Toptree Wood have already been planted and are scattered up and down the country.

All of them, in accordance with Woodland Trust policy, are freely accessible to the general public, and are a gift for future generations.
