Four million trees will be planted over the next year, the UK government said as it confirmed it would continue to fund the creation of new woodlands.

The funding will create 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) of new woods. Ministers also said new grants for planting trees were planned from 2015.

Plans for creating 2,000 hectares of new woodland in 2014-15 falls far short of the government's own aspiration to create 5,000 hectares of new woodland (12,000 acres), the Woodland Trust said.

The Woodland Trust also raised concerns about threats to existing woodland such as development, and the possibility that developers could be allowed to cut down ancient woodland if they "offset" the damage with new planting elsewhere.

Hilary Allison, Woodland Trust policy director, said... "At just 10%, England still has one of the lowest rates of woodland cover in Europe."
