This is the first result of a partnership between Forest Carbon and the Lake District National Park Authority. The objective is to create a mixed native woodland that will create connectivity with two existing ancient semi-natural woodlands in the valley. The combined sites include Birch, Oak, Scots pine, Larch, Holly, and Goat willow. The ground flora includes bog moss, wavy hair grass, lemon-scented fern, foxglove and bryophytes.

Funding was provided by ICAP plc in recognition of its 2013/14 carbon footprint.
