Nature reserve Storröjningsmoran

Nature reserve Storröjningsmoran

Storröjningsmoran is one of the county's most valuable sites, with rare species such as sparsely populated meadow grass, large meadow grass and sedge. The reserve is close to a road but the area is extremely difficult to access as it is wet and in places very densely covered with younger spruce. There are no paths in the area.

Information

Of particular importance is the abundant presence of sweetgrass. Other interesting species that occur in abundance are spring barley, brook trout, goldenrod and dwarf witch hazel. Storröjningsmoran's high value of flora has been known and written about since the early 1900s.

Deciduous marshes and deciduous swamp forests
The area was noted for the interesting deciduous fens or deciduous swamp forests. But also for the northern occurrence of ash. The special flora in the area is probably conditioned by the presence of calcareous shell gravel in the loose soil layers and by the flow of moving soil water in the area.

Affected by forestry
The natural values of Storröjningsmoran have been damaged by previous drainage and forestry and are in need of restoration with the aim of restoring the area as far as possible and thereby indirectly recreating the deciduous swamp forest that once characterised the area.
