Case Study: Grasslees Wood
National Park Coquetdale Area Fund - Amount Awarded - £400
National Park Voluntary Ranger working in Grasslees Wood
Grasslees Wood, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) was identified as sufferring from a lack of natural regeneration of the native broadleaf tree species - Oak and Hazel - within it during a National Park survey in 2006.
Area funds were used to purchase equipment for this project to enable the growth of the trees, and to protect the young trees when they were re-introduced to the woodland, and also to cover costs of some trees being grown from seed by local business Cheviot Trees, at their site in Wooler.
