Royal Mail have revealed a set of six Special Stamps that capture beautiful and inspirational views of forests from across the four countries of the UK.
Valued for their environmental benefits, such as cleaner air, flood prevention and providing habitats for wildlife, the UK’s forests generate hundreds of millions of visits per year.
The stamps showcase the character and varied colours of the nation’s forests and are available to pre-order now from www.royalmail.com/forests.
Featured in the set are images of the following forests: Glen Affric, Sherwood Forest, Glenariff Forest, Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, Coed y Brenin and Kielder Forest.
The stamp launch coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Forestry Commission.
Clare Pillman, NRW’s Chief Executive said:
“Trees have a special place in the lives of communities now, just as they did in 1919, and will in 2119. Celebrating this centenary is all about inspiring people to share our passion for woodlands and forests and help us protect and improve them for generations to come.”
The stamps go on general sale on 13 August from www.royalmail.com/forests and in 7,000 Post Offices throughout the UK.
