This month, we urgently need your help to protect two unique pieces of woodland - the Lincolnshire Limewoods and Two Mile Coppice, in Dorset.
Recorded in the Domesday book, the Limewoods
are up to 8,000 years old and a haven for wildlife, including
dormice. We have a unique opportunity to acquire 200 acres
of land adjacent to the Limewoods, where we plan to plant 160,000 native trees to help buffer and protect these precious woods. Please can you help us raise the required funds to complete this purchase?
Mile Coppice is already owned by the Trust but, for the last six
years, it has been under threat from the proposed Weymouth relief road.
Recently, the Council concerned has submitted a new planning
application for what, we feel, is an unnecessary road. To save this wood, we need as many people as possible to object by Monday 4th Dec. Please take the time to find out how you can become involved in this campaign.
in another sad indictment of the planning system's failure to protect
trees, contractors have felled (possibly illegally) two mature oaks at
Penmaenmawr in Wales, one of which may date back to the Napoleonic Wars.
We're calling on the Welsh Assembly to ensure this never happens
again and we'd like you to join our campaign. Please see the story below for details.
