National Forest - Battram Wood
In May 1998, The Royal Forestry Society acquired 48 hectares (117 acres) of arable farmland adjacent to the village of Battram, in North West Leicestershire, in the heart of the new National Forest. Generous support came from the National Forest Company, North West Leicestershire District Council, Leicestershire County Council and the Rural Development Commission.
The RFS challenge is to create a model multi-benefit woodland there from scratch, with the support of local residents.
The new Battram Wood is a flagship of how to create and run profitable woodlands for future generations in crowded lowland Britain. The site demonstrates best practice in planning, establishing and running woodland with wildlife conservation, landscaping, access and interpretation as integral components.
