Welland Woodlands

Market Harborough sits in an area of the United Kingdom that has the lowest density of standing woodland in the Country, currently England has only 9% of woodland coverage while Europe averages at over 40%. Leicestershire and Rutland together form one of the least wooded areas of England, with only 3.3% woodland cover and South Leicestershire has least coverage at only 2% cover.

Our aim is to identify land around our community that can be planted to provide both amenity and biodiversity.

A local group has recently formed with this very same aim and we will be working closely with the “Welland Woodlands” group who are part of the Woodland Trusts network of groups.
