NOWERWOOD, LEATHERHEAD, SURREY

Nowerwood is a 32 ha woodland site, comprising predominantly hazel coppice with sweet chestnut and oak standards. The site is Surrey Wildlife Trust's main educational site, with up to 5000 schoolchildren per year visiting.

Previous planting work was carried out with school and scout groups, and it is hoped to improve this connection.

 

 

 

 

After opening up a new ride and clearance of invasive rhododendrons from a neighbouring site owned by the Naitonal Trust, and installation of new fencing, a mixed natural species hedge was planted along the fenceline. This comprised hawthorn, crab apple, hazel, field maple, wild privet, guelder rose,wayfaring tree, spindle and dog rose.

Biodiversity will be improved by the addition of this hedgerow, which will act as a wildlife corridor through the site.
