How the Wood has Grown
The young trees in the fields near Braeview Academy and the Vale of Duntrune are part of Middleton Wood, Dundee's Community Woodland.
Tree-planting started in 1993.
Many of the young saplings will grow to be grand mature trees for the children of today to enjoy in their retirement.
Middleton Wood is not just for trees, it is:
- a nature area for wildlife
- for public use
- for local participation
- for nature study
What has been done?
- pine and deciduous wood planted for good biodiversity
- car park and paths created
- rubbish removed
- fun activities
- schools activities
The Rangers lead school group activities exploring the wood.
We can study trees and wildlife or help the wood to grow with tree-planting or clean-ups.
Activities are planned to meet school work.
The Ranger Service hold a family fun day each summer which has trails, wildlife activities and crafts to make and take away. They are always free.
Middleton Wood needs help to be looked after
