Wilstead Community Woodland, Wilstead

We planted at Wilstead Community Woodland in the winters of 2019 and 2020. It’s 6.3 hectares (or 15.3 acres) and sits between Wilstead and Wixams.

This site doesn't have an official name yet, and surfaced pathways and site furniture are due to go in at some point in the near future. We're in talks with Wilstead Parish Council to select a name, so watch this space!

This new woodland was made possible with the support of L&Q Estates, the developer of the Wixams estate, as part of their contribution to the Forest.

If your friends and family use Wilstead Community Woodland then please let them know that it is run by the Forest of Marston Vale and not the council. Land is expensive and managing woodlands is expensive. It isn't as simple as putting a tree in the ground and walking away - it costs £20 to plant one tree and look after it for 5 years. So trees don't cost the earth, but they might just save it.
