Lower Wood Nature Reserve - coppiced trees
Lower Wood Nature Reserve - coppiced trees
Lower Wood > LinkExternal link has existed since the end of the last ice age. It is recorded in the Domesday book and has supplied the local population with timber for hundreds of years up until the 1970s. A legacy of the wood's working past are the many coppiced trees > LinkExternal link dating from the times when ash poles were supplied to a brush-making factory in nearby Wymondham. The woodland is also one of the best places in Norfolk to see hornbeam trees (Carpinus betulus) > LinkExternal link. The sycamores that grow here are in the process of being removed - they are not native to the UK and threaten plant growth on the woodland floor. The 37 hectares of ancient coppice and woodland > LinkExternal link are now a nature reserve and SSSI, managed by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and traversed by a number of tracks and paths.
