SWWAG is affiliated to the GREEN LIGHT TRUST which is a charity based in the Suffolk village of Lawshall, formed in 1989. The group was involved in helping villagers in Papua New Guinea to preserve their rainforests, and decided to try to plant a wood in their own village in England. Today, although they started with no resources, they have a beautiful and thoughtfully designed 22 acre wooded area which hosts many community events. As well as establishing their own wood, GLT has helped well over 40 other communities to start similar projects. Each group started with just a few enthusiasts, nevertheless many of these groups now have land that they are planting trees on.
