Climate Change, Trees has just been launched to bring together all of the UK’s known publicly accessible woods –  14,000 woodlands in all.

The £2.1 million project enables people to find their nearest accessible wood and directions to it. Visitors keen to share their experience can attribute various features and facilities to the woods they have visited, as well as uploading photographs, recommendations and comments to the site.

The project has been developed by  the Woodland Trust in partnership with other leading organisations such as the Forestry Commission, the National Trust, Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, Yell and DoubleTree by Hilton.

2011 is the International Year of Forests, a year of celebrating trees, woods and forests across the globe and the perfect time to think about how we value our precious trees. Sign the Woodland Trust petition to ensure the preservation of ancient woodlands in the UK:

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
