The National Forest is your place to grow. 

For over a quarter of a century, a tree planting revolution has been taking place in the Midlands. Since our first tree was planted in 1991, nine million more have followed, changing our landscape from black to green. The National Forest is a place of transformation, showing how trees can transform not only the landscape, but also, vitally, people’s lives and the local economy. By partnering with us, you become part of our invaluable network of support that is helping to create a forest environment, support our forest communities and ensure a sustainable forest economy.

We call this network: Mycelium – the enterprise ecosystem of the National Forest.

What is Mycelium?

New research tells us that trees are linked together through a complex underground network of tiny threads called Mycelium. Through these connections, trees can share nutrients, water and even warn each other of danger. The evidence so far suggests that being part of this network makes trees more resilient. That’s why we’ve created our own Mycelium ecosystem of enterprising organisations that want to support the Forest and each other, to grow and become more sustainable.

How to get involved

Our work looks beyond tree planting – we want to create an environment that helps people and wildlife to thrive. We believe trees are a catalyst for change; that by creating opportunities for people to experience outdoor space we can improve health and wellbeing, and by encouraging sustainable growth we can ensure that our Forest is here for years to come. Our business packages below reflect all of our work, and choosing the right package for you depends on how you want to engage with and support the Forest.
