Tree Planting in Norfolk at Burston Playing Field

Burston Playing Field is a new community woodland and wildflower meadow in the Norfolk village of Burston.

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.

* THIS WOODLAND IS Temporarily Full *
We’ve planted so many trees here that there isn’t any space to plant more. We hope to be able to plant here again in future years.

Burston Playing Field was a disused football pitch in the centre of Burston, Norfolk.

Working with EFORESTS, The Parish Council and local volunteers have planted over half the site as woodland and wildflower areas.

The site has been given to the village by the local Mann family of Thelveton Estates, for use as public space for use of everyone in the village.

It is intended to involve the school children and as many people in the village as possible, in the planting and future care of the trees. Footpaths run through the woodland and wildflower areas for everyone to enjoy.

There is also some native hedging to the eastern edge, a community orchard and BMX track to the southern part of the site.
