One Acre Wood

Tree Planting in Dorset at One Acre Wood

One Acre Wood is being planted to create a tree and shrub-rich sanctuary for the benefit of wildlife.

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 is a private woodland and can be visited by appointment only. Please email oneacrewoodbooking@gmail.com to make an appointment.

One Acre Wood is part of an ex-dairy and has until recently been grazed by a local farmer's cattle.

The aspiration is to create a tree and shrub-rich sanctuary for the benefit of wildlife and to use as a Forest School for local schoolchildren.

Current wildlife in a nearby woodland and the field include brown hare, barn owl, kestrel and several species of bat. There is also a local roe deer population.

The woodland is maintained by the landowners with help from the local school to plant trees and undertake maintenance tasks to help the trees establish.

The new trees will help improve its biodiversity and provide shelter for wildlife.
