A Woodland Awakening - The Importance of Trees

Thursday, 25th August 2011

In response to public outrage at the proposals in Jan 2011 to sell off our public forests, the government has set up an Independent Forestry Panel to decide between 2011 - 2015 what is going to happen to the remaining 33% of our public forests - however this panel still has a remit to sell 15% - so we are not out of the woods yet. This short film endorsed by the Woodland Trust highlights the government situation and shows the importance of trees, our endangered public forests and our dwindling ancient woodlands - featuring interviews with woodland artist Bleau-Shanay Hudson, head of pr at Woodland Trust Paul Hetherington, druid Philip Carr-Gomm and Britain's favourite TV Vicar Peter Owen Jones and Jakub Kaminski.
