Campaigns update: crimes against woods and trees during lockdown - Woodland Trust

There's been an increase in reports of illegal felling of trees and woods during lockdown. We'd like to understand what's going on.

The illegal felling of woods and trees is completely wrong, particularly at this time of year when it’s likely to have devastating impacts on wildlife.

In normal circumstances, it’s very difficult for us to do much on a case-by-case basis, so it’s even more difficult for us in these current circumstances.

This is where you, our supporters, can help us. We need your help to determine whether we’re looking at a larger issue that has come about as a result of the current lockdown and limits on government bodies to monitor and investigate illegal felling and wildlife crimes.

We’re compiling an evidence base of felling cases so we can raise this at a higher level and make sure the Government takes appropriate action.

Here's a short guide to the laws on tree felling and how you can help.
