This week is national tree week.

The Woodland Trust explain why it is important

Why is it important?

The recent news has been a storm of negativity surrounding the state of our woods. The Forestry Commission’s tree planting figures are shockingly low, with the UK still maintaining its position as one of the least wooded countries in Europe.

Our woodlands are at risk of “critical decline”. Diseases like ash dieback continue to decimate tree populations, and our woodlands are constantly under threat from development. Climate change continues to pose a serious threat to our woods and trees

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
—From “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer

Now at FSSC you will not be suprised to see students take this very seriously


Well done Carrianne; I can assure you she was still wearing her school hat on the top branch.


“She is certainly starting to branch out at school and people should take leaf out of her book. When you get to know her you will find her bark is worse than her bite” If you know any other and more humourous comments let us know.

Grant commented that she should be charged with treeson!
