Woodlands cover only a small percentage of Jersey’s total land surface. The fact that many of them occur on côtils alongside main roads leads to the assumption the Island is quite well-wooded.

The clearance of Jersey’s original forest cover to create farmland began at least 6,000 years ago, when the Island was settled by people from the French mainland. Little or none of the original woodland has survived, and most of the woods we see today have either been planted, or have arisen naturally on land which is no longer farmed.

There are 4 main areas of woodland in Jersey and each of these is accessible to the public:

  • St Peter's Valley
  • St Catherine's
  • Le Saie
  • Vallée des Vaux
