Signing the Tree Charter

At the 9th London Tree & Woodlands award ceremony, Fund4Trees trustees Martin Gammie & Russell Ball, together with Chair of the Forestry Commission Sir Harry Studholme, signed the ‘Tree Charter’.

The new Charter for Trees, Woods and People celebrates the 800th anniversary of the original document created by Henry III in 1217.

In November, Fund4Trees are planning to take a copy of the new Charter on a 180-mile bike ride from the famous ancient yew in Ankerwycke to Lincoln Cathedral where the Charter will be launched. We’ll make further announcements about this soon.
