Thanks for your help. We expect to have planted over 30,000 trees by this spring and instigated 7 natural flood management schemes since we started in 2020 as we almost have the lowest woodland cover in the UK and our clay catchment floods. Nothing happens without our wonderful landowners and volunteers. It's fun for all ages.
