The naked trees dominate the landscape at the moment. While blossoming trees bring joy to spring, bare branches show the complexity of trees, creating striking silhouettes against the sky.
The Woodland Trust is currently asking people to share their tree stories, in support of creating a tree charter. They explain on their site:
“The charter will be rooted in stories and memories that show us how trees have shaped our society, landscape and lives. We need you to share your story with us, to help us create a charter that reflects the true meaning of our trees and woods to the people of the UK.”
The final charter will be launched in November 2017 – the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest.
If you have a story about a tree, or trees, that you’d like to share to support the charter, visit the Woodland Trust website and add your voice to the campaign. Trees help us live and grow. It seems only fair to return the favour.
