Kier Living at Montgomery Wood

Montgomery Wood is a new public access permanent native woodland situated between the A38 and the River Trent just north of Alrewas. The woodland is the product of a partnership between Kier Living's Greener Living programme, Forest Carbon and The National Forest. The woodland has been planted for carbon capture, wildlife habitat and as part of the tow path walk from the nearby village.
