Tree Planting at Blenheim

The first of 270,000 trees are being planted at Blenheim as part of an ‘unprecedented’ project to create nine new woodlands on the Oxfordshire estate.

Throughout December around 30,000 trees are being planted at a site known as the River Dorn Wood including hornbeam, lime, sycamore, wild cherry, oak, Norway maple, alder and beech.

Work will begin on creating eight further woodlands in the new year, with the first phase of planting expected to be completed by the end of March 2022.

Blenheim is working in partnership with Morgan Sindall Group plc, the construction and regeneration group, the Forest Canopy Foundation (FCF), Grown in Britain and Nicholson Nursery on the ground-breaking scheme.
