Would you like to have fun, socialise, learn new skills and spend time in nature all whilst contributing to the management of the largest new native broadleaf woodland in England?

At the Heart of England Forest we want to help reverse centuries of woodland decline and create and conserve a magnificent 30,000 acre broadleaf forest for the benefit of the environment, wildlife and people. At just 23% of the way towards our 30,000 acre goal, we are already the largest new native broadleaf woodland in England.

The Forest stretches up the Warwickshire/Worcestershire border, from the north Cotswolds to south Birmingham. Within the Forest there is over 100 miles of public and permissive footpaths for people to explore the woodlands and appreciate the nature we have around us.

The charity offers a variety of ways to engage with nature, such as through providing public access to woodland walks, hosting events, delivering learning and skills programmes for adults and children, and through volunteering.

Our amazing volunteers help us with all aspects of creating and managing our 7,000 acre Forest, including tree planting, tree guard removal, footpath maintenance, wildlife surveying and assisting with our events. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to be outdoors and get stuck in!

We hold practical conservation volunteer days 4-5 days a week. You can come for a morning, afternoon or the whole day. Training, equipment and tools are all provided, however we ask you to bring your own work gloves and dress appropriately for the weather.

Our activities are seasonal and are held at a variety of locations across the Forest. Particular emphasis is placed on tree planting in the winter work season.
