Wood for the seas

To commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar, 27 new woods are being planted accross the UK throughout the year - one for every ship of Nelson's fleet and each wood will be named after one of the ships.
.
The Woodland Trust Society for Nautical Research's joint Trafalgar Woods scheme is being implemented with the help of local schools and communities to recognise the home-grown contribution of materials in the building of Nelson's fleet.
.
The project is intended to be as much about the future as about the past; the 27 new woods will be reaching maturity at the next bicentenary.

Congratulations. I am not a tree hugger but I do like a good walk in the woods.
