England Tree Strategy

Support our response to DEFRA’s England Tree Strategy consultation

ACAN are responding jointly with Construction Declares Steering Group to DEFRA’s England Tree Strategy consultation, closing on the 11th September. We see this as a chance to influence England's Tree Strategy for the next 30 years, and help the government to maximise benefits of tree planting. Read more about why this consultation is so important for architects to respond to, and our position in our Blog post.

ACAN have partnered with Construction Declares Steering Group to let the government know how important trees are for productive and diverse woodlands as well as healthy towns and cities. We invite all industry professionals and members of the wider public to sign our open letter and to participate in our campaign:
