Growing the nation's forests

Forestry England are creating a new Coronation Wood at Quoditch, in Devon, to commemorate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. The 56 hectare woodland is close to Halwill Junction near the village of Ashwater. The woodland will be open for informal public access for local people to enjoy alongside thriving wildlife and sustainably-grown timber.

Work in progress at Quoditch

The new woodland will be a valuable place for timber, wildlife, and local communities. The land will be planted with tree species chosen to match local soil types and expected future climate conditions. The landscape design will aim to improve the site for nature conservation.

We are creating detailed plans for the new woodland. The woodland at Quoditch will be an important part of the work that Forestry England are doing to expand the nation’s forests as part of the Government’s Nature for Climate Fund.

Quoditch woodland public consultation

We invite you to comment on our draft design proposals for the new woodland. You can comment online until Sunday 28 July. We will be holding a public drop-in event in July - find out more on our consultation page.
