THE OLD BROADLEAVED WOODLAND
Sun-dappled and rich in biodiversity, broadleaved woodland provides a habitat for many of our most recognisable species. The seasonal pattern of losing and gaining leaves allows for the woodland floor and understorey to be just as varied as the canopy.

This is the theme of my new poster; The Old Broadleaved Woodland.

Lets step into the broadleaved woodland: This forest is characterised by it's trees and it's leaves, the hazel and its nuts are loved by people, squirrels and hazel dormice alike. The majestic beeches form a cathedral-like roof with their upwards spreading branches, thus creating a specific habitat for rare wildlife. Old, dead oaks serves as the perfect napping spot for the sleepy mottled brown tawny owls and their downy owlets. The birches with their drooping branches and triangular leaves provides food and habitat for more than 300 insect species, as well as hole-nests for woodpeckers and other birds.

The leaf-littered woodland floor is home for to a diverse ground flora; a buffet for herbivores and fungi that lives off plant matter, like the beautifully spotted bush snail and the rare flaky puffball.

At the edge of the broadleaved woodland, where woods turn into open fields, the flora and soil changes and you find brambles and hedge vegetation; like the delicious and blackberry, framing broadleaved meadows in abundance.
