Wonderful woodland walks, Forest experiences, historic houses, exciting visitor centres, sparkling lakes, cosy guesthouses, log cabins in sun-dappled glades, fantastic festivals - these are just waiting for you in The National Forest.
The National Forest is one of Britain's boldest environmental projects, creating a Forest for the nation across 200 square miles, embracing parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire.
You can help create this 'forest in the making' through our plantatree scheme. You will receive a certificate and be invited to a special tree planting day. This makes a great gift.
