The Urban Woodland Project

The Urban Woodland Project is a new online resource developed by Groundwork London in partnership with The Forestry Commission, to help communities and landowners make the most of our urban woodland.

What is Urban Woodland?Urban woodland can be defined as all the woodland within the boundary of a town or city, ranging from larger tree and shrub-covered areas down to individual street trees. It may be owned by private landowners, institutions or local authorities.  

Whether you’re wanting to set up a new woodland user group, a landowner or an established conservation group this resource can signpost you to the inspiration and support you need to protect and maintain our precious urban woodland. We have some tailored resources for new groups and woodlands just starting out - 'Acorns', for established groups - 'Saplings' and those groups and landowners who are well established and experienced - 'Mighty Oaks'.
