• We ♥ forests. Trees are vital, beautiful and provide a home to ¾ of all plant and animal species on Earth.
  • More than a billion of us rely on the resources that forests provide, but we forget how much we rely on them. Newspapers, aspirin, furniture - the list is endless…
  • Never has it been more essential to highlight the importance of trees at home and around the world.
  • 2011 is the International Year of Forests.
  • Sign up and tell us why you love forests, make a pledge to help forests and spread the word about Love Forests.

Love Forests? Hug a tree..

On September the 11th at 2pm we want to get the whole country hugging trees! You don't have to be in a forest to do it - it can be a tree in your garden or on your street, but show your love and help us celebrate the International Year of Forests by joining in.
The Forestry Commission will be organising mass tree hugs across England. We will update you with locations soon.
