Please help us to restore Moccas Hill Wood by making a donation or sponsoring a tree today
Moccas Park in Herefordshire is one of the largest and most diverse examples of wood pasture remaining in Britain.
Moccas Hill Wood, adjacent to Moccas Park, has been acquired by the Woodland Trust and Natural England. Our ultimate goal is to restore the area to parkland and wood pasture as an extension to the habitats of Moccas Park National Nature Reserve. In order to do this we aim to plant over 600 trees within ten years. Many of the trees planted will be grown from seeds collected from the veteran trees in the deer park, securing the ongoing historic and cultural importance of the trees at this site. Young trees will be propagated in our on-site nursery.
Since acquiring the site most of the conifers have been removed, creating a blank canvas on which to replant the veteran and ancient trees of the future. This will enhance the rich habitat network and provide for many native species for centuries to come.
£5 or £10 donations will help support native seed collection, nursery planting and resourcing the planting of many trees over many years.
£25 will pay for the planting of a tree with a chestnut and wire mesh cage. A gift card featuring a beautiful illustration of the site’s future landscape will be provided for you to send to your chosen recipient.
£75 will pay for the planting of a tree with an exquisitely hand crafted oak and chestnut cage with a personalised plaque. A gift card featuring a beautiful illustration of the site’s future landscape will be provided for you to send to your chosen recipient.
