Trees can enhance sporting opportunities, reduce flood risk and increase crop pollination, it will point out, as well as providing shelter for livestock and habitats for wildlife.

Its woodland creation director John Tucker said: "Providing shelter and increasing tree cover doesn't require taking over large areas of land. It can often mean maintaining and restoring, or planting next to existing hedgerows and trees."

He added: "The CLA Game Fair offers a fantastic opportunity for landowners to talk to us about how trees can improve and protect their land."

The show takes place at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire on 18-20 July.
