No mention of the benefit of planting trees for the timber for our tables and chairs and to build our houses !

Thanks for contacting us. This particular graphic is intended to help people consider the UKFS criteria for planting the right tree in the right place, rather than outlining the wider benefits of tree planting. We do produce resources that highlight the benefits of trees, like this one. We hope you find it useful https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1078625/The_Case_for_Trees_WEB_May_2022.pdf

Hi! Just found this page and signed up for email updates, will look forward to reading them. I used to spend a lot of time in forestry commission in Devon, so am quite accustomed to woodland environments. Living at a different place now, joining in with the Welsh plant a tree for Wales bee, and chose to plant a couple crab apples, ancient UK variety, at the edge of the new woodland project here for future generations to enjoy. Only £15 for 5 Crab Apples so going to place 2 of them on the edge of the woods, should go in there quite nicely for the new apple pressing events they hold here in the Autumn! Plenty of sylvestris for free for Christmas jams. A Christmas present for the Welsh if you like. A foragers friend from fairy gardens. Thanks.
