Other Site Characteristics

The site Norr-Espen is a nature reserve. Norr-Espen is situated in the archipelago of Luleå. The island is a good example of landupheaval, the effects of hard winds and waves can easily be seen on the island. In the south, flat rocks "cleaned" by the waves are found and in the north sand dominates. There is a large variation of habitat types on the island. Nature forest of spruce is most common but it is sometimes mixed with deciduous trees. Fens and flat rocks fragment the forest. Pine forest grows on the sandy parts of the island. A boarder of alder, which sometimes is very lush, goes all around the island. The island is at the highest point 16 meters above the sea level.

4.2 Quality and importance

The island of Norr-Espen has a relatively unaffected forest of primary succession of landupheaval coast. The nature types that are found on the island are dynamic and are constantly changing through the landupheaval. The forest at the site shows high nature qualities for example a lot of dead wood and mixed age. The natural succession at the site has resulted in a mixed forest of both deciduous and coniferous trees.
