Save England's ancient forests

The Woodland Trust is having a campaign to try to save England's ancient forests.  The concern revolves around two issues, the Forestry Commission transferring ownership from the government (public trust) to private ownership and the practice of populating the ancient broadleaf woods with conifers which change the ecology of the woods significantly.  Currently the plans only affect England and not Scotland, Wales, nor Northern Ireland. They have a petition to sign (only requests you email address), membership in the Trust, a shop, and of course they take donations.
