Hagbrae is an excellent example of a multi-purpose farm woodland. Planting mostly native species will ensure that this project delivers for local wildlife, helping to create new woodland habitat within the Tyne valley ‘Special Landscape Area’.

The trees themselves will also provide shelter for the farm’s livestock, in time perhaps offering areas of silvopasture for the animals to graze, too.

Some productive species have been planted, which will allow the farm to produce firewood and, in the future, a sustainable supply of timber. These will help the business to diversify its income streams, making it more resilient to any economic uncertainty within the sector.
