The Project

The United Kingdom possesses a lengthy history of deforestation, evidenced by its mere 5% forest cover at the turn of the 20th century, a trend exacerbated during the First World War with intensified tree felling. Recognizing the imperative to sustain existing forests, efforts in the UK are directed towards their enrichment.

Furthermore, British wildlife heavily relies on forest ecosystems, yet the nation is witnessing a distressing decline in its wildlife due to deforestation and ecosystem collapse. The diverse wildlife in the UK encompasses birds, deer, squirrels, reptiles, badgers, beavers, bats, foxes, hedgehogs, otters, and more. Even the extinct lynx could potentially be reintroduced through targeted reforestation efforts.

Moreover, the augmentation of tree cover and forested areas promises cleaner air, enhanced wildlife habitats, and a sustainable source of wood. Trees play a crucial role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide during growth and sequestering it in wood. Presently, UK forests store over 12 million tonnes of carbon, supplemented by an additional 42 million tonnes in soils and leaf litter. Expanding forestation endeavors holds the key to further carbon sequestration.
