St Ives Community Orchard

Tree Planting in Cornwall at St Ives Community Orchard

St Ives Community Orchard has been planted for the benefit of the local wildlife and community.

* 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.
For the nearest alternative woodlands take a look at the Woodlands Locations Map.

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.

The aim of St Ives Community Orchard is to create an area with a variety of different fruit trees and shrubs to enhance the biodiversity, provide wildlife habitats and for the community to get involved with looking after the orchard, enjoying the nature & socialising and picking their own fruit.

It is in a beautiful and tranquil spot at the top of the Cornish town of St Ives, with views of the ocean and the moors, right next to the Palemon Best Recreational Park & Skatepark.

The orchard is looked after by volunteers who meet there regularly to clear the brambles, bracken and look after the trees.

They also organise community events like Apple Day & Wassail.
