Sarah’s Wood is a new native woodland creation which has been sited next to existing woodland. It was formerly land that was used for agricultural purposes, primarily silage cutting, so it will extend the existing woodland. This increased habitat will be beneficial to local biodiversity such as red squirrels and various forms of birdlife.
The woodland will sequester a significant amount of carbon over its lifetime and carbon finance was critical to the project proceeding.
An additional benefit of this planting is the amenity value it provides to the local community.
