Did you know?

Wales is one of the least-wooded countries in Europe. Woodlands make up just 14% of the landscape and less than half of these are native, or broadleaved.

Find a wood

We own over 100 woods in Wales covering an area of 2,897 hectares (7,155 acres). Almost all of these are available for the public to visit at any time and for free.

To discover these woods, visit our woodland search page.

Did you know?

61,755 trees will be planted this season throughout Wales, donated by Coed Cadw, the Woodland Trust in Wales. We hope a similar or greater amount will be planted next season.
