Low Branthwaites Wood Sedbergh

Our 2019-20 Supporter Woodland

2,525 native broadleaf trees have been planted at this unique site in Sedbergh with the aim of creating interest in the landscape, improving biodiversity and allowing people to enjoy the site and breathtaking views across the Howgills. 

All the saplings have been planted with individual tree guards to protect them from harsh weather conditions and damage caused by rabbits, and the site has been fenced to prevent damage from livestock. Trees species planted include: Hazel, Elder, Rowan, Blackthorn, Downy Birch, Holly, Bird Cherry, Hawthorn, Crab apple, White Beam, Spindle and English walnut.
