Terra Sulis has been working with Friends of the Earth on creating a woodland opportunity map for England. The methodology developed in the Chew Valley has been extended to map all of England to identify marginal land that might be considered for woodland creation whilst avoiding high quality arable land, protected areas and priority habitats such as peat bogs and biodiverse grasslands.
Visit the Friends of the Earth Woodland opportunity mapping page to view the England map.
If you live in the Chew Valley then visit Chew Valley Plants Trees to find out what is going on locally.

No, not just the Chew Valley – you can view a similar map of all of England on the Friends of the Earth site:
