HEART OF ENGLAND FOREST - FOREST OF DENNIS:
The Heart of England Forest is a charity committed to helping reverse centuries of woodland decline by planting a 30,000 acre (122 km2) joined up forest of entirely native broadleaf trees.
At 12% of their planting goal, they have already planted England's largest new native forest.
Located principally in South Warwickshire with some woodland in Worcestershire the forest stretches from the ancient borders of Shakespeare's Forest of Arden south to the edge of the Vale of Evesham.
To date, the charity has planted more than 1.3 million trees across 3,000 acres of new woodland between Honeybourne (Worcestershire) to the south and the Spernall Estate (Warwickshire) to the north. Additionally, they have protected and manage a further 600 acres of ancient woodland.
The charity was founded by Felix Dennis, and is now headed by a board of five trustees, led by the chairman, Jon Snow who was appointed in June 2014.
100% of the trees planted are native broadleaf including English Oak, Alder, Birch, Sycamore, Hornbeam, Wild Service and Rowan.
The Heart of England Forest plants around 300 acres of new planting each year between November and April. In 2015 / 2016 the Heart of England Forest planted approx. 170,000 trees - their highest total for one planting season to date.
The charity also grows saplings for planting at an in house tree nursery. Currently producing around 30% of the oak trees planted - the aspiration is that eventually all tree saplings planted will have been grown from seed in house.
The design of the woodland includes wide paths to ensure a beautiful accessible forest, full of light and air.
