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.
