Found to the east of Dunnington, York, Hagg Wood has plenty of wonderful wildlife and flowers for you to discover

Home to foxes, deer, badgers and many woodland birds, Hagg Wood provides the perfect woodland visit for any wildlife enthusiast! At different times of the year you can hear the call of woodpeckers, wood pigeons and cuckoos. 

It's also a great place to spot bluebells in spring, as well as primroses, yellow pimpernel, wood anemone and dog violets, which you'll find growing along the woodland rides and clearings.

Hagg Wood has an interesting ancient history. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was recorded as woodland pasture. It supported livestock and the woodland floor was covered in grassland. The wood has been managed for a variety of products, according to the needs of the time, including timber for building, forage for animals and shelter for game. After being heavily felled for timber during the Second World War it was replanted by Forestry England in the 1950s.

We now manage the wood in consultation with the Friends of Hagg Wood. The long-term objective is to restore the wood as native semi-natural woodland, including oak and other broad-leaved trees and native woodland shrubs, as well as maintaining some of the larger conifers.
