A place with great potential, and space to grow

Woodgreen

Creating a new forest for people and wildlife

We plan to turn these fields into a vibrant woodland which will offer an interesting place to walk the dog, have a picnic or go on a bike ride. Currently National Cycle Route 7 runs through the site from Kilwining to Kilkirnie and beyond. The new trees will benefit wildlife too with a wider range of wildflowers, insects and birds appearing very quickly after the first trees are planted.
