Sign the Tree Charter
This November it’s been a staggering 800 years since the 1217 Charter of the Forest was signed and last year the Woodland Trust launched their Tree Charter campaign with the aim of launching a Charter for Trees, Woods and People to mark the anniversary, this November.
The aim is to bring everyone together as a nation to recognise the importance of trees and woodlands – something which we obviously feel very passionate about here at the Forest of Marston Vale. Forests matter – the Charter will recognise, celebrate and protect our woodlands as the hugely beneficial, wonderful things which they are!
The Tree Charter’s Principles tie right in with ours – from managing wildlife habitats, to growing our woodland economy, to ensuring new developments come with as many trees as possible. Trees are for everyone, urban and rural, and by getting 60,000 signatures already they have proven that this is an important issue for a huge cross section of people.
Sign the Charter today and make sure you check out their website for updates and information about how it’s progressing in the run up to November – we’re doing our bit in the Forest of Marston Vale but this project will ensure sure that the whole of the UK is as focussed as we are on reconnecting with trees!
