Before visiting this woodland, please read our Frequently Asked Questions page, which gives you helpful tips about your tree and visitor guidance.



Long Wood Community Woodland has many kilometres of paths and bridalways.

The Long Wood Community Woodland visitor centre is built entirely from wood sourced on site.

Pine and Sitka Spruce dominate large areas of Long Wood Community Woodland.

Long Wood Community Woodland is a working woodland and, as the pine and spruce are removed for timber, oak and other native broadleaf tree species are being planted.

New oak trees are planted in shelters to protect them from being eaten by rabbits, etc.


In their first year the young oak trees are just about visible, among the tall grass, near the visitor centre.
In a year or two they can easily double in height and will be far easier to spot.


The birdwatching hide, next to the pond, is a great place to spot the woodland's wildlife.


The young oak trees are mostly planted close to the track leading from the visitor centre to the main wood.
