Surrey Hills Champions tree planting day

The first Champions Nature Recovery site – Clandon Wood

The first designated site will be Clandon Wood Natural Burial ground and nature reserve. The 31 acre grounds are managed to complement the surrounding farmland and woodlands to the benefit of local wildlife. Although most of the site is meadowland the newly planted trees will blend the woodlands and grasslands of the neighbourhood together.
