Trevisker Forest

Restoring endangered temperate rainforests

Trevisker Forest will provide an outdoor classroom for the children of Trevisker Primary, a small school in rural Cornwall. The project will create a critical pocket of temperate rainforest, a now fragmented and rare ecosystem that once predominated along the west coast of the UK. It thrived thanks to the Gulf Stream, which provides mild, damp conditions that are ideal for rainforest biodiversity to flourish.

Once abundant, there are only 1% of these ecosystems left due to generations of deforestation and felling. These rainforests are now classified as one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world.

Together with the creation of a second pocket of temperate forest at the nearby St Kew’s Primary, not only will this project provide a much needed boost to the ecosystem’s survival but it will also show school communities across the region how rainforest biodiversity can thrive on their doorstep. The children will have hands-on experience during the planting and the forest itself will become a living resource that grows up alongside the children.

Trevisker Forest will forge a connection between hundreds of school children and nature, supporting their wellbeing along with that of the planet.
