The implications for both water use and water quality of the proposed Greenwood Community Forest (Nottinghamshire) are examined. Of the 44000 ha in the designated area, 2700 ha are already afforested and under the proposals up to a further 10000 ha could become afforested. This would change the forest cover of the Sherwood Sandstone outcrop from its present 10% to 25-35%. This is a significant change in land use and will have implications for the quantity and quality of recharge to the underlying aquifer.
