“Natural treasures, in roots, wood and leaves,
for beauty, for use, the air that we breathe.
Imagine: a wood begins with one small seed.
We’re stronger together – people and trees.” Harriet Fraser, 2017
The Charter for Trees, Woods and People sets out the principles for a society in which people and trees can stand stronger together. The Tree Charter was launched in Lincoln Castle on 6 November 2017; the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest. The Tree Charter is rooted in more than 60,000 ‘tree stories’ gathered from people of all backgrounds across the UK.
