About us

Buckle's Wood is a community woodland in Elmsett, Suffolk, England, begun in 2005. James Buckle owns the land, so we named it after him.

We were supported from the beginning by The Green Light Trust, which has a similar scheme at Lawshall in Suffolk, and by the children, parents and staff from Elmsett Primary School. The children chose the scheme's name (Elmsett Greenlife Grove Scheme, or EGGS), helped to grow and plant trees, and they use the wood as an outdoor classroom.

If you live in or near Elmsett and would like to get involved, please get in touch. Working parties are friendly and fun, and we supply refreshments.
