If you'd like to help your local environment, why not join our enthusiastic team of volunteers?

We run regular work parties at all of our sites, and also offer volunteering opportunities with our specialist flora, drystone walling, and hedge-laying groups. If you're keen to help out with our communications or volunteering at an event, we would also love to hear from you.

Hedgelaying Group

Good hedgerows provide food, shelter and connectivity for wildlife. Ancient hedges can host a range of important plant and animal species, including ancient trees. 

Our hedgelayers meet regularly in the hedgelaying season to restore and create traditional hedges in the Wychwood area. Email toby@wychwoodforesttrust.co.uk to find out more.
