Other Site Characteristics

The site Hemshyttan is situated in an area close to the Barken-system of lakes. The area is of special interest in terms of protection of the white-backed woodpecker Dendrocopus leucotos. The valley of Barken-lakes are since long time known as an important lead-line for migrating birds, and the white-backed woodpecker has had a small breeding population in the area. The forest in the area consists of a large amount of deciduous trees, where aspens, birches and alders dominates. Moraine, consisting of large boulders and with a high amount of nutrients, seems to be the reason for richness of deciduous trees. There are few traces from modern forestry and the forest has a lot of dead wood and old windthrows.

4.2 Quality and importance

The forest in this area has developed natural and is not so much affected by human encroachments. By this, the characteristics which distinguish a naturally regenerated forest The trees has often many different ages and there are a lot of old, large trees. exist, namely a richness of coarse trees, dead trees and old windthrows, and those species who belongs here. These circumstances are very unusal in the forest land of today, and many of the species which will be found here are rare, redlisted and threatened. This gives the area very high values.
