Woodland Trust 'tree for all' site

A new campaign worth promoting here - the site has lots of information on the importance of woodlands and trees, and an excellent .pdf from Iolo Williams, in which he states that the Welsh Assembly Government should commit to every citizen having a certain % of woodland a certain distance from their house.

From Iolo's document:
Woods are crucial to sustaining life on earth. They take in carbon dioxide and return oxygen to us. They enhance the quality of our lives and environment with their richness and biodiversity. It is surely our collective responsibility to protect, restore and enhance the distinctive woods, parklands and forests of Wales.
