Briscoe Wood

Tree Planting in Yorkshire at Briscoe Wood

Briscoe is a 16 acre woodland located between Harrogate and Leeds in Yorkshire.

IMPORTANT VISITOR INFOTake only photos. Leave only footsteps.

To keep the woodland as natural as possible we don’t label individual trees and we ask that visitors do not place their own plaques, labels, flowers, etc in the woodland. Each tree we plant should be seen as part of a natural woodland.

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

Briscoe Wood was first planted in 2000 and is a mixed broadleaf woodland with a variety of native tree species.

Sadly a number of Ash trees in the woodland are suffering from Ash Dieback and are being felled during 2020.

However this is making way for a mixture of new, native UK tree species to be planted.

The site is managed by Leeds Coppice Workers
