We have decided that it is appropriate occasionally to draw attention to certain campaigns that relate to the conservation of woodland in Britain.
THE WOODLAND TRUST ARE CAMPAIGNING AGAINST THE EVEN MORE DESTRUCTIVE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE 2ND PHASE OF THE HS2 railway
HS2 will destroy more than 10 hectares of ancient woodland on Phase 2.
Loss of ancient woods and trees will hit new heights today (11 July) unless a group of MPs orders HS2 Ltd to urgently upgrade its plans.
Some 23 per cent more destructive than the first phase from London to Birmingham, the next 40 mile stretch of the project from the West Midlands to Crewe, will see 10.2 hectares of ancient woodland lost. Veteran trees, hundreds of years old, are also threatened.
