Rø Plantage

Rø Plantage was planted with trees from 1866 to 1875 ifl Højlyngen, a stony, heathery pastureland that formerly covered large parts of the island. This planted woodland is a varied, hilly area containing many small lakes and bogs and is transected by rift valleys.
Borgesø Lake was formed by damming up a stream, and one of its purposes has been to store windfalls after a storm in 1967.
