Trees Are The Key

Awareness Week

18-24 March 2024

Welcome to Trees Are The Key Awareness Week 2024

If you’re looking for an uplifting diversion from a busy world, please feel warmly welcomed to Trees Are The Key Awareness Week 2024.

Our aim is to connect you with the  joy and hidden treasures locked in trees, everywhere.

This year, we’ve got content for your eyes, your ears and your creative mind.

There are so many secrets waiting to be unlocked in our parks, woodlands and forests. Our Week will attempt to reveal a few.
Humans and wildlife need abundant trees to sustain life and to ensure that biodiversity flourishes.

We hope you’ll feel encouraged to press life’s pause button, step into nature and connect with some of your favourite trees.

We’ve got new articles and features coming every day in our newsfeed and on the dedicated page for the Week itself.

Pop back regularly to see updates, or subscribe to Word Forest and we’ll deliver it to your inbox to enjoy when you’re ready.

Birdsong at our Office

Listening to the sounds of nature has the power to calm the body and mind. Immerse yourself and relax with the dawn chorus on Monday 18th March outside our office in East Devon.

Trees Are The Key Awareness Week is an initiative from UK Registered Charity, Word Forest, run each March to encompass The International Day of the Forests. Based in Devon we plant trees, support women’s empowerment, build schools and facilitate education in rural Kenya. We raise environmental awareness and plant trees in the UK too.

See our positive impact in action in the documentary #TreesAreTheKey narrated by Kate Winslet.
