What can I see?
In order to preserve the scientific trials, Paradise Wood is not open to the general public. We do occasionally have open days and tours, so please check the What’s On page on our website to see if anything is coming up.
What’s special about this place?
- Earth Trust is championing a new sustainable model for our trees and forests – integrated management which balances their value for people and wildlife, as well as for economic, sustainable timber production.
- The research here is primarily focused on high quality hardwood timber production. There are many hardwood tree species grown in Britain, but there are five species in our tree breeding program: ash, beech, cherry, oak and walnut, chosen because of their commercial importance and their ability to grow well in mixtures and on a variety of sites.
- We also undertake additional research into the environmental and economic aspects of commercial broadleaved forestry.
