There is a tree line, and if you venture below it, you get into the woods which are bursting with both fauna and flora. Here, you will find native oak woodlands as well as softwoods which provide a habitat for the indigenous wildlife. The red squirrel is one of the animals which thrive
in this environment, and few like it across other parts of England. The rainfall received in this area is much higher than in other parts of England. Owing to this, ferns, mosses, liverworts and lichen have the opportunity to thrive. The management practices used in the woods vary to ensure that the ecosystem remains stable for the centuries to come.
