We manage a number of woodlands and plantations throughout Derbyshire.
We encourage the creation of new woodlands and are committed to improving the existing woodlands to maintain and enhance the character of the landscape and provide habitats for wildlife.
To help us achieve this we work with a wide range of volunteer groups and other partners.
Our management of woodlands and plantations always takes into consideration the sensitive needs of wildlife.
Aston on Trent Brickyard Plantation
Aston on Trent Brickyard Plantation is an area of secondary woodland plus mixed woodland planting and a wildflower meadow on the site of a former clay pit and brick works.
Bluebell Wood Local Nature Reserve
Our job is to look after this special place and at the same time make sure everyone can share it – quite a balancing act. The site was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 2007 in recognition of its importance for both wildlife and people.
Frith Wood is a wildlife haven where you can enjoy wandering woodland paths, through the meadow and around the pond.
Holmewood Woodlands has been recreated upon the site of the original 'Holme Wood' which is where the village gets its name.
Woodland plantations and surfaced paths around the Manners Industrial Estate at Ilkeston.
Riddings Wood is a local woodland of both recreational and conservation value.
