THE INSECTS
Moth- trapping has shown the wood to be rich in moth species.  No work has been done on other invertebrates as far as is known. The abundance of dead wood, from the remnants of elm trees which died of Dutch Elm disease in the 1970's and from birch trees which have passed maturity, provides an important habitat for many invertebrates, such as beetle larvae.
