Pixton Park ancient and veteran tree assessment 2015 (NECR379)

Mosaic Mapping was contracted by Natural England to survey Pixton Park, Dulverton, Somerset and assess the veteran tree resource. It is proposed that it becomes a new Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and it is necessary to understand the nature and extent of this habitat in order to determine if it fulfils the JNCC criteria for notification.

To do this, fieldwork was carried out over four days in February and also four in March 2015. At this time of year the trees are yet to leaf and discovering, inspection and GPS mapping is easier. John Smith of Mosaic Mapping undertook the survey, aided on the first visit by Alan Lucas, who also produced an initial fungus list concentrating on those associated with dead wood habitats.
