Help

Plans for a new public woodland to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee have been unveiled.

The woodland will span an area of 460 acres in the National Forest in Leicestershire.

Georgina McLeod from The Woodland Trust told Tim Muffett the new space will be transformed in as little as 10 years.

The Woodland Trust hopes to plant six million trees that will create hundreds of new woodlands across the UK.
