Over 80 commemorative trees were planted across the country during autumn and winter 2019 to mark the passing of the Forestry Act in 1919.
These new landscape features are both a witness to the past and a view to the future for generations to enjoy. In Eggesford Forest in Devon, a new tree avenue was planted on 9 December 2019 marking the 100th anniversary of the first tree we planted on that day in 1919.
Avenues and glades have been planted at:
Hamsterley Forest, County Durham
Dalby Forest, Yorkshire
Sence Valley, Leicestershire
Wendover Woods, Buckinghamshire
Moors Valley Country Park, Dorset
Eggesford Forest, Devon
Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire
