I'm pleased to announce the agreement with the Woodland Trust who have kindly agreed this process and application for geocaches on their 1,000+ woodland sites across the UK. Thanks to the Woodland Trust for putting this in place.

1. Identify the Woods where you would like to place your geocache
on the Woodland Trust website here.

2. Visit the site to identify a suitable hiding place (in line with GAGB guidelines here.) and take GPS coords (normal WGS84 coordinates).

3. Whilst at the cache location, also take the OS grid reference on your GPS (change the settings to "British Grid" to take a 2 letter, 10 number reference). Don't forget to change your GPS back to WGS84 geocaching reference afterwards.

4. You can prepare the cache page on geocaching.com now. This will give you a GCXXXX waypoint, but don't forget to untick the "Yes, this listing is active" option to prevent the Reviewers from seeing it at this point.

5. Download the application form here, complete and forward as described.

6. Wait for Woodland Trust approval or contact to discuss your cache location further.

7. After Woodland Trust approval then place your cache. Then enable your cache on geocaching.com and forward a copy of the approval to both UK Approvers listed on the form.
