Comment:

The woodland is mainly composed of old/mature hornbeam and sweet chestnut coppice stools with a few areas showing successful recent coppice. There is a nice amount of mature, mainly oak and some beech) and dead wood across the whole of the woodland. The ground flora, although sparse in places, is showing good indicator species for this woodland type. Bracken can be locally dominant but this is not a problem throughout the unit. Although there is some evidence of deer (tracks) evidence of browsing on vegetation is low. This was assessed as part of the field unit / Sussex Team Woodland Monitoring Woodland Project. KH/CF 22/08/2016.
