Hoo Wood is a strip of woodland separating an industrial and residential area of Kidderminster in North Worcestershire.
The wood is predominantly oak, with silver birch being the next most abundant tree species. A few sycamore, beech, elder, holy, ivy, willow, larch, hawthorn and hazel exist on this site. This is not ancient woodland; none the less, I feel sure the area has a strong influence on the health of Wilden Marsh, or at least the marsh would be a poorer place without it. Also, I understand that the wood Dark Wood, at the north end of the site, is one of the richest botanical sites in North Worcestershire.
