Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, has been elected a Vice Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Woods and Trees during a meeting on Thursday 15th April, last week.
The APPG for Woods and Trees meets to discuss ways in which woods and trees can be preserved, protected, expanded and the impact of climate change.
During the meeting, members of the APPG also received a presentation of The Woodland Trust report entitled ‘State of UK Woods and Trees’.
Simon Baynes MP said:
“I’m delighted to be elected Vice Chair of the APPG for Woods and Trees. This is an extremely important group and places woods and trees at the forefront of the agenda, ensuring they are protected at a critical time for our environment. I look forward to working with the group, to ensure that the vital role they play in safeguarding our eco-systems is recognised and that we can prevent further damage to our precious Welsh and other UK woods and trees.”
