This is a chance to visit our current Supporter Woodland.

Ormsgill Wood is a short distance from the village of Airton in a peaceful area of open countryside with views across Malhamdale. 

Streams run throughout the Ormsgill woodland site (headwaters of the river Aire) so species planted are appropriate for wetland areas. These native tree species now form a series of new gill woodlands which also provide habitat suitable for  black grouse. 20,510 trees are planted in total including: Downy Birch, Silver Birch, Rowan, Hazel, Bird Cherry, Sessile Oak, Goat Willow and Hawthorn.

All the saplings have been planted with individual tree guards to protect them from harsh weather conditions and damage caused by rabbits, and the site has been fenced to prevent damage from livestock.

The woodland is situated on private land with no public parking – there are footpaths which cross the area offering good views of the young woodland. These Open Days offer the opportunity for you to explore the site.
