South of Lake Häckebergasjön you walk through an extensive beech
woodland. Several parts have an exceptional plant and animal life
and are classified as woodland key habitats. There are large trees
with spreading crowns, which reveal that they have grown up in an
open environment. Several of the old beech trees are in the middle
of a several hundred year long fight to the death and are ideal for
wood decayers, lichens and mosses. Häckeberga is reknowned for the
many rare lichens. Even the rare hermit beetle has found a home
here and the area by Degebergahus is managed with special
consideration for the beetle, to ensure it survives at
To north you go through Dörröds fälad. The hazel grows densely
