Felix Dennis dies after battle with cancer

MULTI-MILLIONAIRE publisher Felix Dennis has died.

The 67-year-old passed away on Sunday (June 22) at his Dorsington home surrounded by loved ones after a long battle with cancer.

Famed for his maverick and entrepreneurial style and, more lately, as a successful poet, the publishing legend began planting trees south of the River Avon in 1995 and hit upon the idea of creating a huge native forest in the area.

He founded the charity The Heart of England Forest with the aim to plant and preserve a large native forest in the heart of England – stretching from the remnants of the ancient Forest of Arden to the edge of the Vale of Evesham.




And in September last year the one millionth tree – an oak sapling – was planted in Great Alne as part of the project.
