Priority Habitat - Lowland Mixed Deciduous Woodland

This priority habitat brings together a wide range of lowland woodland types, on well-drained basic to acidic soils on steeply sloping to more or less level ground in the southern and eastern Scottish lowlands.  The tree canopy comprises varied mixtures of species including oak (typically pedunculate), downy birch, silver birch, ash, wych elm, sycamore, holly and hazel.  The ground layer vegetation is variable depending on soil type and includes herb-rich, grassy, and healthy vegetation.
