Registered charity no. 1055228
The Oxfordshire Woodland Group was founded in 1987 to encourage and promote informed and sensitive management of small woods in Oxfordshire. It is a registered charity with powers to promote woodland management and education in Oxfordshire and elsewhere.
The Charity’s Objectives
“To advance the education of the public in the history, ecology, management and economy of woodlands and their place in the landscapes of Oxfordshire and such other areas of the trustees may from time to time decide”.
The Oxfordshire Woodland Group is funded by grants received from local authorities, other charities, member subscriptions, donations and bequests. We hold regular events in Oxfordshire usually in woodlands belonging to members who have extensive knowledge about all aspects woodland management, trees, timber and woodland products that they are more than happy to share.
Woodlands are increasingly becoming recognised as a valuable resource for not only for just growing trees, producing timber and fuel but also increasingly for both public and private recreation and enjoyment. We aim to help owners and users to derive the greatest possible benefit from the woodland resource.
Please contact us if you need advice or would like to know more about trees and woodlands and hopefully even get actively involved by becoming a volunteer or simply to make a donation as unfortunately money doesn’t grow on trees.
If you’d like to become a member please contact us.
As part of our activities we work closely with woodland owners and managers.
The Oxfordshire Woodland Group provides a professional small woodland management and advisory service to owners and community groups in Oxfordshire. We aim to offer solutions tailored to the particular requirements of small scale woodland. Where necessary, we innovate to help us meet the new demands we are placing on our woodlands, including woodfuel, biodiversity, quality timber, public amenity and recreation. We work closely with owners, local authorities, charitable foundations, think tanks and community groups to make good woodland management achievable for present and future generations to enjoy.
