  • A young forest created on arable land
  • A demonstration of how to create a model multi-purpose woodland from scratch
  • An example of professional management and silviculture to create best quality timber
  • An opportunity to educate about forest management, encourage community involvement and provide habitats for conservation purposes

Purchased in 1998, Battram Wood is an excellent example of how arable farmland can be developed into an economically viable woodland. Situated in the National Forest, this 48ha site near the village of Ibstock aims to maximise timer quality through professional management, ensure all operations are run economically, maintain and enhance existing public access and wildlife habitats and also educate forest industries and the wider community about forestry.

Although a young woodland, with planting occurring between 1999 and 2001, it provides an excellent place for walkers, tree enthusiasts and those interested in seeing how a young woodland can develop.

We have received Grown in Britain Accreditation for Battram Wood - independent recognition that they are managed in accordance with the UK Forestry Standard for sustainable woodland management in the UK.
