NBS at Doddington North

NBS at Doddington North

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 and replanting, to create a natural all-age forest with no clear-felling. This method is not only better for habitat, it yields more timber and more carbon capture in the long term. 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.
