Welcome to the Community Woodland Network.
We hope that you’re able to find all the information and advice you need to support your community woodland project. But if you’re yet to get started, please read these hints and tips to help get the most out of the Community Woodland Network.
Community Woodland Network hints
A good place to start is our introductory guide to taking your first steps as a community woodland owner.
After reading this, please take the time to explore the rest of the website and take a look at the advice section.
This information covers the key areas you need to know about owning a community woodland including:
- Setting up or developing a community woodland group (mobilising support, structure etc.)
- Acquiring woodland (leasing a wood, buying a wood and the legal minefield)
- Planning your woodland (getting to know your wood and writing a management plan)
- Financing your woodland (fundraising a-z and funding sources)
