Anthony Burton CBE, Trustee - The Heart of England Forest

Anthony Burton CBE, Trustee


Anthony is a Senior Partner at solicitors Simons Muirhead and Burton. He was Felix Dennis’s private lawyer and is a founding Trustee of the Heart of England Forest, appointed in 2003.

I am committed to helping to deliver Felix’s dream of planting a 30,000-acre contiguous broadleaf forest. Trees are of fundamental importance to the environment and the human condition, and the peaceful, majestic and mystical Forest has a uniting and bonding quality.

Anthony’s other roles include Chair of the Royal Court Theatre, Chair of the Death Penalty Project and a Council Member of the organisation Justice, an all-party law reform and human rights organisation working to strengthen the justice system.
