Whitbuck Wood has all the attributes of a semi-natural ancient woodland, where young and mature hornbeam coppice share space with oak and chestnut standards. It is bordered, on its northern and western boundaries, by open meadowland. The understorey is punctuated with grassy knolls, gives a light and open atmosphere. It is home to a variety of wildlife, including a mythical white deer.

Because this one of the few Essex special woodlands it is covered by a Tree Preservation Order. This does not prevent normal woodland management when a management plan is in place.

There is a covenant, click here to read, on the woodland designed to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of this and adjoining woodland.
