Avon Needs Trees

Avon Needs Trees is a registered charity based in Bristol that is buying land in the Bristol-Avon Catchment Area for reforesting.

Planting trees will sequester carbon from the air, enhance biodiversity and provide natural flood management, as well as water and air quality improvement, and more public amenity space.

Beginning its life as an idea thought up by Bristol-based writer and activist on energy and climate change Nikki Jones, ANT now has a board of nine professional and dedicated trustees who bring invaluable experience. In August 2020 we completed our first purchase – 34 acres near Calne, Wiltshire.

We are supported by The Environment Agency, The Woodland Trust, The Bristol-Avon Rivers Trust, the local Wildlife Trust and the local Friends of the Earth groups.
