Ormsgill Green (ID: 104000000012695)
Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust
The creation of 25 hectares of new native riparian woodland west of Ormsgill Green Farm, on the tributaries of the River Aire (Otterburn Beck). As well as providing a carbon store the woodland will benefit water quality, help to ‘slow the flow’ and has been designed to encourage the locally important BAP species Black Grouse. There is a public bridleway that runs near the site and the new woodland will be seen from this.
The planting specification was drawn up by the Senior Trees and Woodlands Officer at the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority in consultation with the landowner, Forestry Commission and the Parish Council. Consultation involved other specialists on subjects including landscape, Archaeology, Ecology and public access.
The woodland habitat is based on a native woodland and the management will be non intervention in that the woodland will develop without thinning or intensive management. The woodlands are clearly visible from the minor, but well used road that connects the north and the south of the national park.
