Trees, woodlands and forests are critical components of life on Earth and of sustainability whether in cities, towns or the countryside. They provide habitats, mitigate climate change and deliver a wealth of benefits for human health.
We care for and demonstrate that different trees, woodland and forests deliver varied benefits, and that their sustainability relies on planting the right trees in the right places for a future horizon of 50-100 years.
Delivering Britain’s first Tested Oak Seed orchardWith funding from the Forestry Commission, the Future Trees Trust is working with Earth Trust and The Sotterley Estate to share valuable genetic resources for oak tree planting across the UK.
Biodiversity in WoodlandsWith funding from the DS Smith Charitable Foundation, we've created interactive resources that enable schools to deliver workshops on the biodiversity of woodlands.
Invertebrate TalesThe Invertebrate Tales project aimed to inspire interest in invertebrate biodiversity in woodlands.
Living Ash ProjectFollowing the emergence of ash dieback, Earth Trust led a 5 year partnership project to find resilient ash trees.
We manage approximately 130Ha of woodland around Little Wittenham; small pockets of farm woodland, an SSSI ancient woodland, an historic wood on a Scheduled Monument, a nationally important research woodland and an arboretum.
It’s a varied collection with differing aims including promoting biodiversity, providing access, scientific research and commercial enterprise.
