The Government set out its ambition to increase tree planting to 75,000 acres each year across the UK by the end of this Parliament. To support this, we announced a Nature for Climate Fund, part of which will kick-start a step-change in tree planting in England. Forestry is a devolved matter and we will work with the devolved administrations to increase planting across the UK.
We will expand on woodland creation initiatives like the Northern Forest and Northumberland Forest, and plant more trees in urban areas. We will support afforestation on private land, continuing our woodland creation grants, which offer a viable, long-term source of income for landowners who deliver environmental benefits by planting and maintaining trees.
