jpeggytaylor reblogged this on Oak Trees Studio and commented:

Do you remember voting for your "Tree of the Year" for England? The winner of this competition is the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire. At present there is no national register of significant trees like the Major Oak. Creating this UK register will show how much we all value these living monuments and will help protect our ancient trees for future generations. Please support the Woodland Trust's call for a national tree register - you can find the link in their post. Thank you. J Peggy Taylor

School Wood Saved!! (for the moment)

Nearly four hectares of ancient woodland in the Cairngorms National Park have been saved (Whoop – Whoop!)

In May 2013 we were alerted to a planning application that could cause the direct loss of almost four hectares of ancient woodland. 552 more words

The emptied mast

Coulsdon, London, November 2014

In Devilsden Wood we tiptoe around fallen beech logs, slipping at times on beech leaves and clay, and the emptied mast. The nuts will have been eaten by hungry jays and squirrels. 202 more words
