Bye Wood

A major Woods and Trees appeal was launched in 2021 to raise money towards a brand new Exmoor woodland. Bye Wood is one of the biggest woodland creation projects to have taken place in the National Park for 15 years. It forms part of our commitment to increase tree cover on Exmoor from around 13.5% to at least 17% by 2050 - the amount recommended by the UK government's independent Climate Change Committee.

With help from CareMoor donations we could scale up our efforts to plant 13,000 trees, using only the best environmentally-friendly practices and materials to create a unique and sustainable woodland that will be treasured for years to come.
