Small Woods is the organisation for everyone who is involved in hands-on management of small woodlands, whether as owners, managers, volunteers, woodland and coppice workers or community woodland members.

We offer a wide range of benefits:

  • Our quarterly magazine Smallwoods, aimed at both the experienced forester and those new to woodlands and packed full of articles on doing the right thing by your woodland whether your main interest is woodfuel, timber, wildlife or recreation. Click here to see a sample copy.
  • A Technical Information email and telephone line, giving you answers from experienced and qualified foresters to all manner of queries.
  • A free copy of our 70-page Small Woods Information Pack covering everything from finding a woodland and setting objectives to marketing timber and enhanced biodiversity.
  • An invitation to attend our Members visits and training courses, giving the opportunity to learn about woodlands and meet other enthusiastic Members.
  • Access to our Mentor scheme, pairing experienced members with those new to woodland management.
  • The chance to attend our annual Skill Share and AGM event.
  • The benefit of our policy work with national and regional bodies, ensuring that the interests of our small woodlands and those caring for them are not forgotten.
  • A  regular email update on our activities and news from the woodland sector.
