Ullebergsskogens nature reserve

Mjölby

 

The more than 120-year-old bilberries are characterized by originality and there are plenty of dead and dying trees. Ullebergsskogen was hard hit by the aftermath of the storms Gudrun and Per in the early 2000s. The over-aged spruce attracted lots of spruce bark beetles from the surrounding landscape and the consequence was severe damage and forest decline.

In Ullebergsskogen are 6-7 have mixed coniferous Carr with exceptionally high natural values. Among the deciduous trees are in addition birch, alder, aspen, ash and maple. The high humidity in areas means that old-growth spruce slave, cat foot bench and writing lichen is characteristic species for the area. Dunmossa and arum is also available in these moist and nutrient-rich limestone environments affected.

The red-listed ulltickan thrive in the area, as vedtrappmossa, garnlav and Blanchette (2 locations). On some of the aspens in the north growsädellav, rough feather moss, bårdlav, asphättemossa and fold moss.

Among the herbs twinflower stands out particularly in light and open portions of the forest is almost completely ground cover. Furthermore, there toothwort, Millet, Pyrola chlorantha and lady's-tresses orchid.

In 2015, the reserve's western portions of 10-15 young forests have to be restored to deciduous trees and wetland habitats should be encouraged and promoted. Eventually, two smaller wetlands recreated there before avvattningar through drainage has been performed.
