Although the dead and dying trees appear unsightly they provide a rich resource of deadwood suitable for insect, fungi and nesting birds. As the trees decay they will allow more light to reach the ground canopy, enabling trees such as Oak and Rowan to spring up. In time a new native broadleaved woodland will develop.
