The Woodland Trust Trafalgar Project

The Woodland Trust is a charity which aims to reverse the loss of ancient woodlands and to increase the number of new native woods. It was founded in 1972 and has now more than 1,000 woodland sites in its care, each of them providing free access to the public.

British ships at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar were, like those of other countries' fleets, made of wood.

The Woodland Trust is marking the bi-centenary of the battle by planting new woods names after each of Nelson's 33 ships.
