YEOMADON FARM

THE SITE

To create a diverse and productive woodland, which will sequester atmospheric Co2, provide biodiversity benefit, contribute to provision of sustainable British timber and convert from unproductive land management on moderate grassland fields as well as enhancing the local landscape.

TREES

Species have been chosen to provide good growth on the site, and are to be managed in such a way as to maximise timber quality. This will ensure that as much of the timber is used for long-term use (and long term lock up) of carbon as possible.

CARBON

Productive species have been chosen to sequester atmospheric carbon as rapidly as possible, before long term lockup following felling. Other areas of the wood will focus on on-site sequestration, as areas of low intervention where trees will be retained in the long term.

BIODIVERSITY

Open rides, open areas surrounding nearby sites of interes (biodiversity and archaeological) and mixtures of long-term retention broadleaves are designed to maximise the biodiversity potential of the woodland by creating a mosaic mixed habitat, ranging from conifer stand to open grassy rides and sunny verges.

WATER QUALITY AND QUANTITY

The trees selected are suitable for wet sites, and their presence will slow the rate of water reaching nearby streams during periods of heavy rain. Rain will also be slower to reach the ground, and so instances of localised flooding on the fields will be reduced.

PEOPLE AND ACCESS

The wood gives opportunity to enhance the local environment surrounding users of the nearby fishery ponds, by providing an attractive backdrop and eventually space for quiet recreation of the guests of the owner’s holiday let business, once the trees have established.
