Other Site Characteristics

Misterfall - is situated in the southern woodland in a relatively hilly terrain where coniferous forest dominates. In places, however, the cultivated farmland opens up. Around Misterfall there is an open cultivated landscape with alternating grazing land, fields and regions with deciduous forest. In the eastern part of the village there is a hay-meadow with a large number of pollarded ash trees. The meadow is situated in a slope connecting to the oldest farm site in the village. The earth deposit consists of fine-soil moraine. The ground layer vegetation is dominated by Argostis tenuis, Festuca ovina, Festuca rubra, Polygonum viviparum and Trifolium pratense. A large number of characteristic species for meadows and pasturelands can be found there. In the area closest to the foundation of the old cowshed the vegetation differs from the rest as a consequence of the influence of dung water. The meadow was managed as a traditional hay-meadow through scything until the 1950s. After that a period of only grazing followed. The traditional management was resumed in 1976 and the ash trees were pollarded again in 1987. North of the meadow there is a pasture dominated by oak and hazel with a flora rich in species and characteristic for pasturelands.

4.2 Quality and importance

Misterfall is a very valueable site with a large number of characteristic species represented in the pastures and the meadow. There are also cultural values at the site. In Misterfall the pollarding, mostly of Fraxinus excelsior, is a tradition of foliage harvesting rare in modern time. This was a common landuse for over 1000 years as a complement to haymaking. Misterfall has only few similarities in Östergötland and is on the list of the national conservation plan for the agricultural landscape.
