About the Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is one of the UK’s leading conservation charities. We have over 500,000 members and supporters and more than 1,000 sites all over the UK.

We believe life’s better with trees. We protect and campaign on behalf of the UK’s woods, plant more trees, and restore ancient woodland, for the benefit of wildlife and people.

The role

We are looking for a Woodland Working Group Member to join the friendly Woodland Working Group at Canal Wood.

Canal Wood, a low lying wet woodland site forming a linear wedge between the old canal to the east and the mainline railway to the west. The southern section is wetland consisting of rush, sedge and reed beds linking into the canal and the wet pasture to the south. The northern section is planted to the north west and has more reed beds to the NE. Thus approximately half of the site is wetland with many ditches running west to east into the canal ditches.

The Working Group focuses on performing practical tasks in line with the management plan and as agreed with the Woodland Working Group Leader and the Volunteer Manager. 

Your role will help to achieve our aim of preserving, growing, maintaining and restoring woods and trees across the UK.  

This role is best suited to someone living within 30 miles of the site.
