Wildlife & nature

At Forest of Dean you'll find some of the most unique wildlife in the UK

  • Swathes of wild garlic cover the forest floor

    Walk here during spring and you’ll notice plants bursting into life and bringing fresh colour to the forest. Your sense of smell is the next to be awakened as the pungent wild garlic bursts into flower. The aroma is unlikely to go unnoticed as, along with bluebells, the wild garlic covers large swathes of the forest floor. Both of these species are indicators that this forest has been around for a very long time.

  • Reintroduction of pine martens

    The Forest of Dean is home to many animals, including wild boar, roe deer and dormice, but more recently, pine martens have made a welcome return. We are proud to have supported our partners at Forestry England and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust with their pine marten reintroduction project. Being nocturnal animals, they can be difficult to spot, but if you do see one, note their characteristic pale yellow ‘bib’, which is unique to each individual animal.
