Quick fact

Since 2014, we have worked with over 600 landowners and managers to help protect and restore thousands of hectares of fragile ancient woodland.

If you own or manage ancient woodland, ancient parkland or wood pasture, restoration can benefit you as well as nature. Generate extra income from timber or woodfuel or create shelter for livestock or cover for game.

Each wood is unique and needs a bespoke plan - there is no one-size-fits-all approach and no set timescale. We can provide a range of advice and support to guide you through the whole restoration process.
