Deciduous Woodlands


A hardwood forest with broad-leaved trees and associated shade-tolerant plants. Deciduous woodlands feature rich, neutral soils with defined canopy of tree limbs on straight branchless trunks, as well as a shrub layer and diverse herbaceous layer where ferns are predominant. This type of habitat includes an easy to walk through, sheltered interior with moderately dense shade and is home to a great diversity of fauna. Crowns of trees are rich with insects and birds.
