The Forest of Avon is one of England's Community Forests, encompassing the trees and woodlands across Bristol, Bath and the West of England.
The Forest of Avon has been running for 30 years and the Trust was established 12 years ago to enable us to increase our work. We plant and care for trees, focussing on the wide ranging benefits they bring - for health and quality of life, air quality, flood prevention, biodiversity, recreation, soil quality and many others. We strive for everyone living and working in the region to have good access to trees and woodlands. We do a lot of work to benefit those living in areas of low tree cover and those who need support to access their local woodlands.
We like to get things done! Starting with £3,000 in 2009, we have delivered successful projects and activities worth £1.3 million of net cost value but a whole lot more in terms of social and environmental value.
We are currently delivering a Defra-funded large scale tree planting programme across the region - Trees for Climate - to lock up extra carbon and help our nation to reach net zero by 2050. We have many other projects ongoing and in early phases which are helping us to greatly advance our impact and the expansion of the Forest of Avon for all our benefit!
