This is a mixed woodland which will provide a visual linkage with the surrounding landscape as well as providing much needed habitat. The intimately planted native broadleaves will be planted in a way as to complement the surrounding landscape. Planting will also take into account public access. The conifers will provide shelter for livestock in winter Wildlife: The property is surrounded by heavily grazed pasture land, the creation of woodland will provide much need habitat for birds and the choice of tree species reflects this. Deer are an important native mammal and significant culling may required to ensure broadleaved tree establishment.
