Join us for #MembersHour on 23 March with Dr Heather Gilbert from The National Forest Company.
Over the past 30 years, over nine million trees have been planted across the 200 sq mi of the Midlands known as the National Forest. The post-industrial landscape has, in some areas, literally been changed from black to green. With ambitious tree planting targets being set across the country, it is important to take stock on the impact and effectiveness of work already done to ensure we maximise the benefits of interventions into the future. The transformation in the National Forest has had a dramatic effect on both people and nature in the area, and this #MembersHour will discuss these impacts, and how The National Forest Company was able to achieve them.
