The Heart of England Forest Project
There is a lovely tree planting project taking place in South Warwickshire called The Heart of England Forest…
The Heart of England Forest’s mission is to restore and rebuild some of the lost ancient forest that meandered across this countryside. So far, we’ve planted over 3,000 acres between Honeybourne to the south and the Spernal Estate to the north…
It’s a simple vision: to plant, protect and preserve a huge broadleaf forest – a place of tranquility and natural beauty that’s open to anyone and planted with the help and support of everyone.
Whether you live in the heart of the forest, or you’re visiting our green and rolling Warwickshire countryside, you can play a vital role in this exciting new woodland. Planting a tree is a great way of connecting with your environment and sowing the seeds of a better world for the next generation.
The forest stretches across the heart of England – from the ancient Forest of Arden, south to the edge of the Vale of Evesham. It’s an area dense in cities, towns and industry. Which is why we’re creating a place to walk under shady canopies and through airy glades, away from the bustle of city life.
The UK has less than a third of the native tree cover of many other European countries, including France, Germany and Italy. So far, we have created over 3,000 acres of new woodland. That’s more than 1 million trees. And our dream is for it to become 30,000 acres. But with patience and your support, who knows how far it will grow!

I was raised near Evesham. I have been in America for 55 years and have not seen Evesham since I left. I live in LosAngeles. It’s more like Harvey Weinstein than John Wayne – I used to love it but lately it’s gone downhill. I play my harp and dream of better days. Like my childhood in the Vale of Evesham. God Bless!
