Friends of Hagg Wood was formed in 1996 to preserve, protect and enhance the natural plant and animal life in the wood for the community.

FoHW holds monthly conservation working parties in the wood and other enjoyable activities, including illustrated talks, social events and visits to places of conservation interest.

Hagg Wood is a coniferous plantation on an ancient woodland site that still has many remnants of the native woodland vegetation.  The wood is designated as a Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS for short).

Inspiration: "trees enhance our lives and lift our spirits. They shelter our wildlife and temper our climate...The planting of trees is a sign of our confidence  in the future. It is a compliment paid by our generation to its successors and marks our gratitude to those who paid us that compliment in the past."

Hagg Wood is an area of woodland of 107 acres (43Ha), to the east of Dunnington, York towards the River Derwent, at Ordnance Survey reference SE 685 526.  It is situated at around 25 metres above sea level.

The wood was established as a Community Woodland in 2003. The Forestry Commission manages the wood in consultation with the Friends of Hagg Wood.

The long-term objective is to restore the wood as native semi-natural woodland, including oak, ash and other broad-leafed trees and native woodland shrubs, as well as maintaining some of the larger conifers.

Wednesday 24th September  -   Fungal Foray

With Autumn now upon us, the magical world of fungi beckons. This year we are venturing further afield with a trip to the extensive grounds of York Cemetery, with its large variety of trees and flowers, to join a conducted tour of the fungi that inhabit its many corners at this time of year. We will meet at the Reading Room car park at 5.15pm and then drive to park in York Cemetery for the start of the guided tour at 6pm. Alternatively, meet us at the York Cemetery at 6pm. The cost of the tour is 2.50 which includes tea and biscuits afterwards in the Chapel. Please let David know on 488674 if you need a lift.
