Countryfile Wood at Quarry Bank

In November 2020 the first saplings were planted in a brand new Countryfile Wood at Quarry Bank, which will be open for all to visit. The wood is part of Countryfile’s ‘Plant Britain’ initiative – an ambitious two-year project to inspire the nation to do its bit for the planet and the environment in the face of the challenges of climate change. Over 3600 trees have been planted in the Countryfile Wood at Quarry Bank so far including native broadleaves; oak, birch, hornbeam, sweet chestnut (plus many more native species) to make a classic English lowland wood. This two-year project will continue through to Autumn 2022, with inspirational Spring and Autumn specials of the programme focussed on seasonal planting, as well as Summer and Winter catch-ups to watch this project grow.
