About this place
Over 100 species of trees from around the world are planted at Foresters Wood. Some of the oldest ones were planted by the Michelides family who pioneered Manjimup's tobacco industry and used this property as their base.
Foresters Wood was established in 1985 by Forestry Australia and is an arboretum of trees dedicated to the famous trees of commerce, culture, legend and literature. It is designed to encourage you to think of forests from a wide range of perspectives - conservation, botany, history landscapes - and to walk among trees, learn their stories, soak up the atmosphere and relax.
Forestry Australia hope that you take away a greater awareness and appreciation of the importance of trees.
Make sure you visit the 'Heart of the Wood' where you can learn how the oak, cedar of Lebanon, ash and laurel have changed the course of history.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
