How to Create a Wood-Meadow

The concept of a Wood-Meadow involves the transformation of a limited habitat into a thriving woodland ecosystem. Planning, plant species selection, ground preparation and planting are only the first steps. Lack of active management results in a homogeneous woodland structure and allows the rapid establishment of native invasives such as bramble and nettle, which in turn prevent colonization by native woodland wildflowers.

Thoughtful, timely and consistent management are key to success and long-term monitoring will be the means of measuring it.
