It’s National Tree Week between 25th November to 3rd December 2017 — the UK’s largest tree celebration annually launching the start of the winter tree planting season. Trees are amazing, as shown in these fantastic photos of ancient trees by Beth Moon, and a vital component of a healthy temperate climate landscape. In York, Treemendous and groups like ours help increase the numbers and quality but a lot more could be done both here and nationally. If you love trees as much as we do, please sign the Tree Charter which the Woodland Trust launched this year, marking the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest, with the aim to recognise, celebrate and protect the right of UK residents to the benefits brought by trees and woods. And if you fancy planting some trees at St Nicks, join for the February 2018 Eco-Active Day.

You will find more tips of the week on this page.
