We are about to start the final season of tree planting at Heartwood Forest. By the end of March 2018, the last few trees will be in the ground.

Why not come along to one of the last two community planting sessions and play a part in the completion of this fantastic forest? The planting days are in November 2017 and March 2018. Hundreds of thousands of trees have been planted by volunteers, with just 40,000 left to go in this season.
