Doddington North is the largest planned new productive forest to be   planted in England in the last 25 years. The forest will cover an area  of around 350 hectares  near Wooler, in Northumberland, with 268  hectares to be planted – 42%  conifer, 20% native broadleaves, 13% mixed  Scots pine and native  broadleaf. Of the unplanted area around half is  open ground and half  managed priority habitat. The site also includes  footpaths, bridleways,  and water courses. Doddington North is  productive and will be managed on a  continuous cover basis with  selective thinning providing commercial  timber. The UK is the world’s  second largest importer of timber and  projects such as Doddington will  be vital in ensuring a sustainable  supply of wood for construction and  other uses.
