It seems that every person has a story connected with trees, or a personal memory connected with trees or a special tree. Trees are navigational points not just in the physical landscape, but in the timescale of our lives. And every story is valuable – it underlines just how important trees are. That’s why we’re collecting stories here – to see the stories that others have contributed, and a fabulous selection of poetry, click the boxes below.
We will be sharing contributed stories with the Woodland Trust who are aiming to collect 40,000 stories to help them form a new Charter for Trees, Woods and People that will reflect the nation’s passion for trees.
