Plan to save and restore nearly a thousand acres of ancient woodland in the south west of England.

The Woodland Trust and The National Trust want to raise £5 million pounds to clear conifers to make way for British oak trees on Dartmoor in Devon.

The conifers didn't originally grow there, but were planted over the last 100 years when there was a big need for timber for building work.

It could take 70 years before the woodland is fully restored.
