Centenary Wood

Centenary Wood

This area of farmland at Pulloxhill extending to 33.5 acres (13.6 hectares) was planted with trees in 1988. Named Centenary Wood, it was planted to celebrate the centenary of the County Council. It is intended that the wood will stand as a demonstration of how trees can be grown as a crop whilst providing for the needs of nature conservation and recreation and creating an enduring and attractive new landscape.
