Where we work
We want to see native trees and woodland enjoyed and valued by everyone all over the British Isles. In total, our landholdings across the UK extend to over 73 square miles.
In England we manage over 800 sites covering over 13,500 hectares (33,000 acres).
In Scotland we look after around 60 woods covering more than 9500 hectares (23,000 acres). This includes Glen Finglas, part of The Great Trossachs Forest National Nature Reserve.
Wales is one of the least wooded countries in Europe. However we are passionate about protecting woods and trees and creating new woods for people and wildlife and today we own over 100 sites across the length and breadth of Wales.
In 2000, we adopted a new Welsh language name - 'Coed Cadw' - an old Welsh term, used in medieval laws to describe protected or preserved woodland.
While Northern Ireland has more than its share of green and beautiful countryside, we are sadly lacking when it comes to woodland.
We are passionate about putting trees and woodland firmly on the map and are working with others to create, protect and restore native woodland throughout the country.
