Heartwood Forest

A vast new forest of more than half a million trees, pockets of ancient woodland, wildflower meadows and fantastic wildlife spotting. It’s no surprise that the Woodland Trust's Heartwood Forest is one of our most popular destinations.

What’s more, Heartwood Forest promises to be even bigger and better in the future. Visit us today and you can go wild in the great outdoors, enjoy some fantastic walks and really get back to nature. Come back again and you’ll be rewarded with the unique chance to watch this new natural world grow all around you.


The bluebells are emerging 

Bluebells are very sensitive to trampling. Be careful where you walk and please keep dogs on leads. Help us protect these precious wildflowers by staying on the wide paths, so the bluebells can take back the narrow paths.

Help us look after Heartwood Forest

It’s only with your help that we can continue to transform Heartwood Forest into a beautiful broadleaved woodland and natural habitat for British wildlife.
