Did you know?

Woodlands where many species of trees exist alongside one another are better for a larger range of animals to live in. The most biodiverse forests also contain trees of different ages, and some animals only use trees when they are at a certain stage of life.

tips

The Jay is our most colourful member of the crow family and prefers to live in woodlands. They hide acorns by burying them for use during the winter months when food is scarce. Some of these buried acorns are not eaten and go on to grow into trees, for this reason Jays are sometimes known as the “foresters friend”.
