“I feel that the Forestry Commission do a marvellous job and we need to protect our trees and forests for future generations. They are places to explore, to relax and to enjoy the species of plants and wildlife that make our country a joy.”

Forestry Commission: Land management

We helped the Forestry Commission launch a land management campaign around Cannock Chase with a film featuring Brian Blessed.

Filmed in Blessed’s back garden in Surrey and on location in Cannock Chase in the Midlands, the film illustrates the scope of the Forestry Commission’s work; enhancing and protecting wildlife working with partners such as The Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.

Alongside the main film, we produced a set of short social engagement shorts, featuring Brian.

Brian Blessed said: “I feel that the Forestry Commission do a marvellous job and we need to protect our trees and forests for future generations. They are places to explore, to relax and to enjoy the species of plants and wildlife that make our country a joy. They are important for our wellbeing and a great place to enjoy stillness and silence. People sometimes wonder why trees are felled and just left there and we hope to help people understand the process in this film.”
