Sphagnum Mosses carpet the ground with colour on our marshes, heaths and moors. They play a vital role in the creation of peat bogs: by storing water in their spongy forms, they prevent the decay of dead plant material and eventually form peat. The cold, wet conditions in some areas cause mosses and plants to decompose very slowly and form peat. These areas lock up large amounts of carbon, clean our water and reduce flooding. We are working to restore important peatland in some areas planted with non-native conifers.Did you know Sphagnum Mosses can soak up more than eight times their own weight in water? How amazing is that! (Photo by Jonathan Need) . . #woodlandtrust #moss #sphagnummoss #peat #moorland #mossofinstagram
Super exciting family news today! My amazing mother @margaret_uttley who has allowed me to understand the potential of making your creative talent into a full time job opened an email today from @trinitybuoywharf formerly the Jerward Drawing Prize to find out that her drawing has been accepted. #mumstheword #amazingmums #drawing #charcoal #pencil #pencildrawing #erase #decay #growth #foliage #woodland #jerwooddrawingprize #trinitybuoywharf #touringexhibition #fineart #blackandwhite #monochrome #malham #northernart #catkins #fauna #yorkshiredales #graphite #naturalengland #inspiredbynature #woodlandtrust #britishcountryside #beautifulnature #contemporarydrawing #representationalart
Just received my heartwarming welcome to the @woodlandtrust 🌱 I am deeply grateful for all of their hard work to protect and restore our beautiful & ancient woodlands and I’m pleased to be supporting them in their vision to create a UK rich in native woods and trees, for wildlife, people and our future generations 💚🍃 To date, 41,497,408 trees planted, 978 woodlands saved and 22,586 hectares of ancient woodland under restoration! (With only 2% of our ancient woodlands remaining there has never been a more important time to get involved!) 💚🍃 . . . . . #saveourforests #woodlandtrust #standupfortrees #protectingwildlife #environmentalist #conservation #futuregenerations #treesarelife #naturelovers #greenlovers #ecowarriors #naturespirits
We’re having a Tree Party 🌳 We’ve invited a tree to tea and we’re inviting you too! If you’ve ever built a den, climbed a tree, hunted for bugs or played hide and seek in the woods then you’ll know that they are the best playgrounds ever and we want to help keep them that way. Our tree party is to raise vital funds for @woodlandtrust to help them plant millions of trees every year, protect ancient woods and trees and keep wildlife safe. On August 9th come & be a Discovery Sprout. You’ll find us under our guest of honour in Hervines Park, Amersham. There’ll be rock painting, stick decorating, a scavenger hunt and cake 🍰. RSVP to discoverysprouts@hotmail.com 🌲🌲🌴🌱🌿🍃#treeparty #woodlandtrust #inspiredbynature #inviteatreetotea #partytime

I think it looks so cute when a Robin is moulting their feathers - they look so long-feathered and fluffy!(The new feathers gradually push out the old ones because they grow in the same folicle.) #robin #robinredbreast #ukbirds #britishbirds #birdlovers #kings_birds #birdsofinstagram #bird_brilliance #bird_illife #ukbirdwatching #nature #naturelovers #rural_love #canonphotography #birdsofafeather #woodlandtrust #bbcspringwatch
We are parked up with or mobile visitor centre on the Lime avenue today. Pop in and say hi! #woodlandtrust #tringpark #outdoors #visitorswelcome
Bursts of light twined through the hedgerow. I think the name ‘traveller’s joy’ fits this plant so much better than ‘old man’s beard’ at this time of year. • Stories from our family woodland - link in profile
Love our #woodlandtrust membership - well worth the money for the amount you get and it’s helping our native woodlands so yay! #woodland #nativetrees #toddler #summer
Can’t believe we’re still walking in the woods to keep out of the heat (I love the sun but the dog’s not so keen!) Loving #summer2018 #heatwave
It's #wildlifewednesday - for a few more hours! I posted a pic of what we got up to at @cornwallwildlifetrust in my stories earlier today, but what I couldn't show you was the incredible natural history film about Cornwall we were privileged to see. Simply beautiful. - I didn't get many photos today but I took these ones at Chapel Porth on Sunday. Did you know @woodlandtrust are conducting a survey to see how many blackberries are already fruiting around the UK? They're definitely well on the way in St Agnes/Chapel Porth! This meadow brown was enjoying a feed on the budlija they were growing through, and the cliffs are purple with heather! (See @woodlandtrust Nature Calendar to record your blackberry sightings - and check out their wonderful 'a year in the life of' series on their IG feed!) With @ashley_mather
Fun afternoon exploring the internationally important #CadzowOaks #Chatelherault #Hamilton #Scotland with Arina and Charles from #WoodlandTrust and Mike and Chris from #SouthLanarkshireCouncil I’m the MSP species champion for Oak. Our iconic oak trees face a fight for survival against pests and diseases. Losing oak trees from our landscape would impact our wellbeing, economy, environment and the species that depend on them. I’m looking forward to learning more about oak and being an active #SpeciesChampion #ActionOak #trees

Thank you to the Woodland Trust Scotland (and its volunteers) for this lovely walk in Geordie's Wood. 1.5 million native trees planted since 2000 in Glen Devon - amazing! #woodlandtrust #woodlandtrustscotland #glendevonwoodlands #geordieswood #nativewoodland #woodlandconservation #glendevon #ochils #ochilhills #perthandkinross #scotland
Wildflowers in the meadow @woodlandtrust Langley Vale. Simply sublime. #wildflowers #woodlandtrust #meadow #flowers #nature #wildlife #plants #insects
Had a stroll around American Adventure car park with @_lucy_does_art_ the other day. Lovely thought to think that nature is slowly taking back the land... but it's sad to think that it'll soon get ripped up again for houses. I'm sure we don't need more houses when I see houses going up 24/7 when I still see houses for sale and for rent... #photography #photographyy #naturephotography #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #travelling #traveller #travelplanning #travelblogger #travelphotography #travel #travelling #springwatch #bbcspringwatch #university #bangoruniversity #nationaltrust #wildlifetrust #woodlandtrust #weleda
