UK»England»Northumberland»Holystone North Wood

Holystone North Wood is a semi natural, acid sessile oakwood, many of the trees are multi stemmed indicating former coppicing. The ground flora is relatively poor and includes chickweed, wintergreen and lesser twayblade. Look out for wood anemone, and woodland birds such as wood warbler, tawny owl and woodcock. Part of the wood has been fenced off to exclude deer in order to promote natural regeneration.
