Join 'Friends of the Lockdown Woods'

Would you like to care for Lockdown Woods, tending our new baby trees? Our 'Friends of  Lockdown Woods' groups meet monthly for a couple of hours, mainly checking sapling health, replacing canes, watering, weeding or litter picking depending on what is required. It is a great sociable way to meet like-minded people and watch our saplings change and grow.


For a full list of what to bring please hover over the lovely picture on the left of one of our dedicated planters!

'Friends of Lockdown Woods Goldwell Park' meeting 1st Sunday of each month, 10am in the Park.

'Friends of Lockdown Woods Barn Crescent' meeting 2nd Sunday of each month, 10am in Barn Crescent or Stroud Green.

Please let us know if you're interested by email & indicate which group suits you best so we can ensure we can keep you in touch.

Come Plant with us

We have held many successful planting events involving the community over the last year. Please watch our website and Facebook Page for more information on our upcoming events!

Tree Guardians


At the beginning of our project we asked members of the public to gather saplings from their garden and care for them to be planted in our woodlands.  

We had a fantastic 150 saplings registered on our site in 2020 which were sadly unable to be planted in Winter 2020 due to ongoing COVID restrictions on large gatherings. However, most of these were planted into Stroud Green Lockdown Wood in November 2021.


Any which were too small for the 2021 planting will probably be big enough to put in the ground in Winter 2022.  Watch this space for further information about the next site and dates for our next community planting of precious home-grown trees.
