Our manifesto committed to increase tree planting across the UK to 30,000 hectares of trees per year by 2025. As forestry is devolved, we are working with the Devolved Administrations to determine how we collectively meet this commitment. We will need to significantly increase tree planting in England, and the forthcoming consultation on the English Tree Strategy will take views on whether a target should be set for England.
