Why grow a Forest?
That is why we are working on a project to grow a network of Forest of Memories in the UK. We will plant, at a minimum, a tree for every life lost in the UK because of Covid-19. Each Forest of Memories will be created on themes that will also create a way to remember everyone impacted in other ways by the pandemic, help fight climate change and benefit UK biodiversity, and they will become an educational, recreational, and cultural resource for local communities.
The Forests of Memories will be true legacies for our society, legacies that create something good from the ashes of these tragic times.
