Nature care around the Mols Laboratory
The nature care at the Mols Laboratory is carried out in cooperation with The Municipality of Syddjurs and The Nature Agency under the Danish Ministry of Environment. Due to the environmental preservation of Mols Bjerge the work with nature care has to follow a specific plan for the habitat area - taking into close consideration the scientific work and interests.
The nature care focuses on three types of nature:
Heath, pastures and meadows are protected under the law of Nature Protection, meaning the areas must be grazed and unwanted vegetation removed manually - approximately 25 Galloway cattle now graze the lands.
In quite a few areas - such as Plantagen and Nulstillingen - forests and thicket are left to its own devices. Here oak and birch often are first to grow.
Most woods are untouched, but in the oak thicket trees, boughs and branches are often picked for building material used for fences.
