Conservationists set to begin creating England’s largest native woodland

“Planted trees will be mostly native broadleaved species such as alder, silver birch, downy birch, willow, aspen, rowan, hawthorn and blackthorn, with montane species on the higher slopes.”

Oak and holly are noticeably absent from that list.
