The planting of Ølgod Plantation began in 1882. Its purpose was to provide shelter for the new station town of Ølgod and to ensure that no heath fires would subject the inland dunes to sand drift, i.e. 'wandering dunes'.
In the following 135+ years, the plantation has developed into an exciting and varied forest, with around 25 different types of trees.
The plantation was named “Ølgod Byskov” in 2013 and is owned by Varde Municipality.
