The Northern Forest is an ambitious and exciting plan to plant 50 million trees across the North of England. It will transform life for people and wildlife.
During a walk around Smithills near Bolton, City of Trees’ Jess Thompson and Gemma Wren of the National Trust tell us all about it. As we explore the amazing landscape, they explain how they’re involved, what the project means for the North and why our relationship with trees is so important.
We also catch up with Trust CEO Darren Moorcroft, who gives us insight into the Trust’s bold vision, the Northern Forest’s significance and why he’s so optimistic for the future.
