Charter for trees, woods and peopleThis year more than 50 organisations across the UK have partnered to launch a new Charter for Trees, Woods and People on November 6th 2017. Community councillors have been asked to share their thoughts about trees and woodlands through a survey. By filling in the short survey, community councillors will contribute to creation of the Tree Charter and will also be entered into a prize draw to win an Apple iPad Mini*.


The new Tree Charter will set out a series of guidelines and principles on how our local communities and trees can best benefit one another. It will serve as a resource, which community councils can use in support of their efforts to look after the trees in their area and ensure their community feel the many benefits that trees can bring. For more information about the Charter, go to - https://treecharter.uk/what-is-the-charter/


Views on what trees and woods mean to people will be used to create a set of guiding principles, around which the charter will be written. The final Charter for Trees, Woods and People will influence policy and practice and celebrate the role that trees and woods play in our lives.


For your chance to win an Apple iPad Mini complete the short survey*. By doing this you will be helping the organisations behind the Tree Charter to find out how the new Tree Charter can best serve your community council.


The survey will be open until Tuesday 28 February 2017.
