Nicki, a former primary school teacher, is our Teaching Trees Education Officer for the East Midlands and explains: "It wasn’t really until I was in my first teaching post at a city primary school that I realised not all children are as lucky as I was and some children haven’t even set foot in a woodland, let alone experienced the adventures of den building and tree climbing."

The RFS is one of more than 40 other organisations calling for a Charter for Trees, Woods and People in 2017.
