what we do

The Whitelands Project is a Community Interest Company, registered as of the 22nd March 2019. We are a social enterprise looking to improve the woodland habitat of Whitelands Wood, through collaborating with local small businesses.

We provide a platform for craftsmen, educators, and traders, to sustainably utilise ecosystem resources. By doing this we hope to encourage a connection and deeper understanding of the woodland landscape, as well as ensuring future protection for the woodland. When you appreciate a place for its economic as well as its intrinsic value, the more you will work to protect it.

We want to help develop rural industry in the Petersfield area. Whitelands is a working woodland, with ongoing timber extraction, firewood production, and management. But we want to make it accessible to everyone. We host quarterly volunteer work parties, where you can get a taste for forestry and invest in the maintenance of the site. We are always looking for new ideas for projects, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Currently we provide an educational venue for Ranger days and Club Morgan with Elsa Donovan, run a sustainable saw mill with Frank Spooner (sole trader), firewood with Tom Hartley Tree Surgery, as well as a site for training courses run by Arbsystem and Nik Woods Tree Services. We also run educational trips, from primary to university level.
