Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Aberdeen’s first Wee Forest was planted on March 16th 2022 by pupils and staff of Woodside School and Aberdeen City Council Countryside Rangers. You can find it across Clifton Road from the school, a tiny forest amidst the granite buildings of the city. A huge variety of native trees, shrubs and flowering plants are found here, to be enjoyed by Woodside School, the wider community and anyone else who wants to visit. The Woodside Wee Forest is looked after by the pupils of the school, the Countryside Rangers, and a team of Tree Keepers, dedicated volunteers from across Aberdeen.
