This is a list of the land owned or managed by the Forestry Commission on the Isle of Wightmarker, England, United Kingdom. In Great Britain the Forestry Commission are the government department responsible for the protection and expansion of Britain's forests and woodlands.. As of 2007, there are 8 areas of woodland on the Isle of Wight being managed by the Forestry Commission, 5 are owned by them and 3 are leased from other owners.

Over the last few years the Forestry Commission has undertaken a detailed survey of the woodlands it manages on the Isle of Wight, as part of what it calls the "Isle of Wight Forest Design Plan". Each woodland has its own comprehensive design plan that sets out how the FC proposes to manage the area over the next 30 years. These include very detailed maps and pie charts showing the current range of tree species found in each area, how this will be changed over the coming years, aerial photographs and plans on how access will be improved for visitors.

The data in the table is taken from the design plans for each woodland, available at their website.Design plans for each woodland area. Forestry Commission. Retrieved on 2007-08-07. (PDF files).
