Award-winning writer, and Woodland Trust supporter, Bill Bryson is backing the new woodland creation within the Green Arc project: "This is a fantastic project. It makes hundreds of acres of woodland accessible to millions of people representing virtually every ethnicity on planet Earth and will engage young and old alike. The value of pieces of wilderness right on London’s doorstep, as irreplaceable refuges and habitats for thousands of species, simply should not be underestimated." Woodland Trust / Biodiversity
