New Woodland Owners

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

We hear two very different stories behind people`s personal decisions to become woodland owners: for Peter, being in the fortunate position to be able to buy a wood has enabled him to achieve a lifelong ambition. He is embracing this opportunity to follow his passion for plants and traditional crafts. Keen to encourage youth groups to share in the positive experience of being outdoors, he has worked with the natural landscape to create a sustainable, dynamic environment to enjoy. For Shirley, her newly acquired woodland is "a sanctuary", a contemplative place to be - a support in her time of bereavement - and a safe, quiet space in nature for her extended family.

Good to see the effort to negate the ivy that was climbing up the trees.

TheJocoHills I guess what I mean is do they partition up the woodland into sections.

Sorry you received a snarky response, I was also interested to hear sizes/prices.

Most of the ones we’ve looked at are 2-4 acres. Being prospective first time buyers we don’t want to take on too much.
Normally there have been half a dozen or so plots within one “wood”, a mix of small ones and larger 5 to 6 acres. The pathways between neighbouring plots are maintained by Woodlands themselves.
The do also deal with bigger woodlands tho – but would need a lottery win to consider those !
