Trees are wonderful!

During National Tree Week we celebrate trees in all their diversity and value. They are an important part of our landscapes, both rural and urban and are important homes for other species.

Many trees are host to fungi, like this impressive oyster mushroom on a tree in Parr Fold Park, near where my parents live

Established in 1975, National Tree Week is the UK's largest annual celebration of trees, marking the start of the winter tree planting season. Organised by the Tree Council, the week offers a great opportunity to help your local trees.

You can find out about your local events here.
