Did you know?

Historically, woods have had a poor deal in Ireland, with woodland clearance beginning as far back as the Neolithic period, around 6,000 years ago.

Find a wood

Northern Ireland ranks badly as one of the least-wooded regions in Europe, with just 8% woodland cover compared with the European average of 37%. In addition, almost 60% of our woodland is in the form of recent conifer plantations.

Our woods are free to visit. To find one near you use our wood search page.

Woodland wildlife

Woods provide homes for more wildlife than any other terrestrial landscape. Here are some of the species to look out for in Northern Ireland.

Ways to support us

There are lots of ways you can get involved with the Woodland Trust in Northern Ireland. Supporters generously give us their time, their money, or their voice – working on big projects or really small ones and everything in between.
