Charter for Trees, Woods and People
On 6 November 2017, on the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest, the new Charter for Trees, Woods and People was launched.
All sections of UK society have worked together to define this new charter. More than 70 organisations and 300 local community groups worked together to help people across the UK to demonstrate the important role that trees play in their lives. These helped to define the 10 Principles of the Tree Charter, ensuring that it stands for every tree and every person in the UK.
