We have committed to bring tree planting rates across the UK up to 30,000 hectares per year by the end of this parliament. Through the England Trees Action Plan, we have launched our flagship England Woodland Creation Offer; our Woodland Officer Apprenticeship Scheme; and three new community forests to boost tree planting across the country. This is backed by the £760 million Nature for Climate Fund.
