November 2015 - The Heart of England Forest

You planted a brand-new forest – in a day

“Today, we really are helping to make the world a better place,” Diane Young, co-founder and MD of The Drum magazine and website.

On 2 November, we took on the ambitious challenge of planting an incredible 10,000 new trees in a single day to help raise awareness of the lack of native tree coverage in England.

Farming for the future

Did you know that there’s so much more to growing your forest than meets the eye?
While the focus of our work is on planting tomorrow’s great native woodland, we also farm several thousand acres of countryside! And the good news is that all of the money we make on our farms goes right back to the charity, helping us to plant more trees and grow your forest even further.

Look to the woods for some crafty Christmas tips!

Why not bring a little of your local woodland into your home this Christmas by using commonly found woodland items to create some stunning festive decorations that are both beautiful and natural?

When you’re next out walking in your local forest, keep an eye out for some of the materials that can be transformed into simple but attractive ornaments.
