There are welcome signs in the Forest that spring is on its way with bright flowers emerging, trees bursting with new life and waking wildlife.
The carbon dioxide absorbing properties of trees make tree planting a great way to tackle climate change, and diverse forests like ours store more carbon.
There are many reasons why our fantastic band of volunteers turn out in all weathers to lend a helping hand in the Forest. We asked Bob why he volunteers with us.
Our two-year forestry apprenticeship offers theoretical training and hands on experience in all aspects of forestry.
The mosaic of habitats found within the Forest encourages wildlife to thrive, with wetlands providing some of the most biodiverse habitats in the Forest.
Acquiring the land to continue to grow the Forest is vital if we are to achieve our ambitious vision to create a 30,000 acre Forest.
