Trees for Transition - Working woodlands for a sustainable future

NHS Forest

PlantingThe NHS Forest is an exciting new national project coordinated by the Campaign for Greener Healthcare. The project’s central aims are:

  • Improving health of staff, patients and communities through increasing access to green space on or near to NHS land.
  • Greening the NHS Estates and planting 1 tree per employee amounting to 1.3 million trees within the next 5 years.
  • Encouraging greater social cohesion between NHS sites and the local community.
  • Bringing together a range of professionals and volunteers to produce woodland that includes the use of art, food crops, woodfuel and biodiversity.
