Objectives

Woodland Heritage believes that ‘productive woodland’ helps increase sustainability and biodiversity. Our activities create a UK more self-sufficient in timber grown in healthy, well-managed woodlands that benefit people and wildlife.

Activities

DEMONSTRATION SITES:

James Wood in Somerset brings planting and management techniques to life across 86 beautiful acres with approx. 30,000 trees.

Whitney Sawmills, Herefordshire, shows the value to people and planet of milling British hardwoods, providing vital income to the charity as proof.

 

RESEARCH & EDUCATION:

Did you know there is a disease killing oak trees? A new PhD will help us all understand how to manage this disease more effectively.

Woodland to Workshop, a subsidised course, blends hands-on experience at a productive woodland, with practical learning at a sawmill and workshop.

 

MEMBERSHIP & OUTREACH:

Hundreds of members, looking after thousands of acres of woodland and working with thousands of people in forestry, furniture, education, campaigning and more.

Woodland Heritage connects and empowers its members through events, a Journal and more.
