The Malanów commune is located in the south – east part of the Wielkopolskie Voivodeship (Great Poland Province), on the Plateau of Turek, on the route 470 Kalisz – Turek, along the Malanów Wall.
The communal grounds, despite being mostly agricultural, are marked by quite high forestage. The forests, which occupy as much as the quarter of the commune land, are rich with mushrooms and forest fruits. Their main attraction and at the same time the symbol of the Malanów Commnune is the Bartek oak, almost 600 years old now, a tree of impressive size, as well as the Scots Pine boasting a notable height.
