Treefest – presented by the National Forest

Walk and discover the wonder of trees

The National Forest is excited to present Treefest – a Connected Treescapes research study in collaboration with the University of Derby, UK Treescapes and Go Jauntly.

Treefest aims to explore how the UK’s treescapes affect the public and evaluate how the form and function of these woodland and forests benefit society. This in turn will help to safeguard these environments for future generations and the rest of the natural world. We have designed eight walks across the National Forest, which can be found on the Go Jauntly app. Participants will be asked a few simple questions before and after the walk, and the data will be analysed by the researchers at the University of Derby to see how different treescapes can support wellbeing. The more people that join in this study, the better the data will be so please encourage people to walk one of these routes and become engaged! You can find out more about the study and how to take part here

As an extra incentive, survey respondent who complete a walk before the end of October will be entered into a free prize draw to win one of twenty £100 vouchers as a thank you for taking part (T&Cs apply).
