Guidance and literature: Dunnaree Hill ASSI

The area is of special scientific interest for its woodland and grasslands habitats. Dunnaree Hill is composed of a range of vegetation communities, including wet grassland and woodland dominated by ash. The area is situated on the southern slope of Dunnaree Hill, with an altitude of approximately 120 - 250m above sea level.

The diverse topography with both deep and thin soils and resultant soil hydrology at Dunnaree Hill has enabled the development of a complex range of species - rich wet and dry grasslands. Often these differences in type are evident over quite small areas and locally form mosaics of semi - natural grassland types, for example rush pasture. and where drier conditions exist, lowland meadow.
