The Woodland Trust, London Borough of Redbridge and Vision RCL are working in partnership to create an inspiring and welcoming Hainault Forest, for now and for the future. Located on the outskirts of East London, we’re working hard to ensure the valuable wildlife and habitats of the forest are protected. We’re creating a space for people – both local and from further afield – to connect with nature and enjoy the great outdoors, supported by reinvigorated facilities for learning, recreation, play and events.

The Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where woods and trees thrive for people and nature, and we’re passionate about the role that trees and woods can play in tackling the threats of climate change and nature loss.

Hainault Forest is just one of over a thousand publicly accessible woodlands in our care. We plant trees, protect ancient woods, and restore woodland habitats; both ourselves and through working with others. Find out more about who we are and what we do:
