We designed the community woodland in the Whitehills area of Gateshead, on what is a reclaimed coal mining site.
It merged with existing areas of woodland on the site and the woodland planting is divided into compartments with wide rides and woodland edges separating them.
It has been designed so that there will be low edges of blossoming and fruiting trees where the woodland is closest to residential areas.
See the detailed map showing the different areas of woodland planting. These are identified in three styles: Woodland Edge; Blossom and Fruit Edge and High Wood (high wood is a mixture of all layers).
There are also images below the map to illustrate how this woodland could look in the future, including wide rides, tapering woodland edges (some with blossoming and fruiting trees), and full forest.
