Charter for Trees, Woods and People

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People sets out the principles by which trees and people in the UK can stand stronger together. The call for a Tree Charter was initiated in 2015 by the Woodland Trust in response to the crisis facing trees and woods in the UK. A new approach was needed – a rallying cry that could unite these individuals and specialist organisations, and help them speak with one voice. The Woodland Trust reached out to all sections of UK society to define this new charter, and to build a people-powered movement for trees.
