This is a productive woodland comprising largely Douglas fir, but with 11% of trees being native broadleaves. All Forest Carbon productive woodlands represent a permanent land use change, and this forest will continue to capture carbon in future rotations. With the UK being the third largest importer of timber in the world productive woodlands are critical to the future of the UK in many ways, not least via their contribution to the emerging sustainable building industry.

The native broadleaved trees, including oak, beech, lime,  wild cherry, maples and rowans, were planted in a broad strip along the  side adjacent to the public road to enhance the landscape effect and add  bio-diversity and conservation value. Around 10% of the area has been  left as a network of open grass rides which will be mown to provide  habitat for butterflies and other flora and fauna. The site is bounded  on three sides by mature woodland and thus provides valuable linkage for  wildlife. A public bridleway runs along the west side of the woodl
