Hatfield Forest's Coppice Appeal
Hatfield Forest is one of the few places with a near continuous history of coppicing that dates back to medieval times. Our team of coppice volunteers are busy carrying out this ancient tradition of woodland management, but we need your help to provide them with new equipment.
Managing the woodland of Hatfield Forest
- Our volunteers help care for 240 hectares of ancient coppice woodland
- It became a National Nature Reserve in 1997 thanks to the volunteers survey work
- Hatfield Forest is now home to over 4,000 species of flora and fauna

" Hatfield Forest is a living landscape, where you can still see traditional techniques practiced by local people. The dedication and hard work of our volunteers means that we can continue to provide a range of habitats for wildlife. With this equipment their sterling work can continue."
Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the outdoor spaces in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful landscapes and protect precious plants and wildlife. But they also ensure that future generations have places they can find freedom from everyday life, reconnect with the natural world and make memories to treasure. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work in the outdoors at this special place. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
