Oxbury Bank at Lanternside phase 2

Oxbury Bank at Lanternside phase 2

The vision at Lanternside is to create habitats that will support priority species. The project will join up existing habitat networks such as ancient woodlands that will increase connectivity and reduce fragmentation.  The woodland is in a Red Squirrel buffer zone and includes red squirrel friendly and neutral tree species to enhance red squirrel habitat and deter grey squirrels from the area.  The project will also mitigate the landscape effects of localised felling of adjacent Forestry Commission plantations. The project entails the removal of grazing land from productive use, and the woodland will be used as a sustainable source of biomass for the farm in the decades to come.
