The Woodland Trust believe there should be at least twice as much native tree cover in the UK and no further loss of ancient woodland.

At Heartwood Forest near Sandridge, St Albans, they have the exciting opportunity to create a spectacular 850-acre wood.With your help we will transform a site with little value for wildlife into beautiful broadleaved woodland, a natural resource that can support more species than any other land habitat.

The site, in the heart of Hertfordshire’s Green Belt, already boasts 45 acres of precious ancient woodland and is home to many rare butterflies and the protected English bluebell.

By planting an additional 600,000 trees, creating wildflower meadows and laying miles of footpaths and bridleways,we will create the largest new native forest in England – in easy reach of millions of people.

Every tree at Heartwood will be planted by a volunteer, cared for by the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, and loved by the people of Hertfordshire and beyond.To do this we need volunteers to join us in the most ambitious tree-planting extravaganza the UK has ever seen.

 Your company can be part of this tremendous opportunity for community involvement, team building and staff development – just choose how you would like to be involved and send back the form for further information, or e-mail: jackiewilson@woodlandtrust.org.uk
