What makes this habitat different?
Our woodlands can be eerily quiet in winter, or full of life and noise during the breeding season.
When spring arrives, there's no better experience than walking past carpets of bluebells while listening to the babble of a nightingale singing.
Woodlands are Britain’s richest and most diverse habitat. Much of the UK used to be covered by woodland, and thousands of species are adapted to live in them.
True woodlands are different from forests grown for wood to chop down and sell because they are made up of many more types of plants and animals.
Forests grown for wood to sell usually have only one kind of fir tree, often not even native to the UK!
