Future Treescapes 2022

Growing the evidence for treescape expansion

9:30am – 4:30pm, 22 June 2022


Future Treescapes 22 is the first conference being led by the Future of UK Treescapes Programme.

Coming years are likely to see one of the most dramatic increases in tree cover and forest planting in the UK for generations. Government commitments to net-zero and nature recovery mean that significant investment in tree planting and woodland expansion will have profound impacts on our country’s landscape, biodiversity and culture. However, questions remain about how best to do this in order to gain the most benefit – not only for the environment but for society as a whole.

The Future of UK Treescapes is a £14.5 million programme of research and activities that will help inform the critical decisions that will be made in coming years around the ‘what, where, how and who’ of treescape expansion. In addition, they will help us to better safeguard our trees, woods and forests.
