This site is important for the presence of wet woodland which is mainly found in the north of the wood next to the stream that flows along the edge and through the wood. Wet woodland is rare in Oxfordshire and is a national nature conservation priority. There is a concentration of wet woodland in this part of the County. Other parts of the wood are drier with plantation woodland.
The wet woodland has alder, willow and silver birch though there is also a lot of sycamore. The wettest areas have tall sedges with wetland wildflowers including gypsywort, hemp agrimony, meadowsweet, marsh marigold and water parsnip.
