Elm is abundant at this site. The loss of elm trees through Dutch Elm Disease has meant that elm now survives mainly as small shrubby growth as the roots send up suckers. Occasionally these become small trees though they usually die off before reaching maturity. Elm is the foodplant of the white-letter hairstreak butterfly, which is now rare due to the loss of elm. A good population of this butterfly has been recorded here.
