Tree crate carpenters get to work at Reabrook event in The National Forest

National Forest sponsor Reabrook Limited gathered saws, hammers and spades for a day out in the woods with employees and their families recently.

New Woodland Takes Root in Wychnor

Montgomery Wood offers visitors fantastic views across the River Trent to Wychnor, with stunning views of St Leonard's parish church. This 2.3ha (5.7 acre) wood has been created by local businessman Chris Montgomery who runs a landscaping business based in Burton. Chris bought the land a few years ago and decided to create the woodland under the National Forest Changing Landscapes Scheme to provide wildlife habitat, access and wood for fuel.

Apple Blossom

Spring and other seasonal delights
