Lees Road Woodland
A survey was carried out by and Arborist from Ecoplan Forestry during the summer months. The Lees Road Woodland has been declared an extremely beautiful, incredible rare mixed woodland of enormous biodiversity and uniqueness – containing beech, sycamore, ash, oak larch, Norway Spruce and Scot Pine, along with the more minor species of Hazel, Holly and Whitehorn.
The Arborist stated that pure Irish woodlands actually have far less diversity and habitat than Lees Road Woodland – the age, species and height diversity of the Lees Road Woodland trees and shrubs creating a range of habitats for a wealth of flora and fauna.
It was noted how beneficial the good network of well maintained footpaths are to society, both young and old.
