The Woodlands Wildlife Pack is a presentation pack featuring 5 different fold-out guides. Find out the names of plants and animals among trees, woods and forests. The pack also includes a card-sized magnifier to help you get in ever closer to the details.
- Ancient woodland indicator plants: Featuring over 40 flowering plants and ferns that give evidence a site has been continuously wooded for centuries.
- Ferns: From hart’s tongue to hard fern, from oak fern to wall-rue, the FSC Ferns guide features the commonest 38 species of ferns found in Britain and Ireland. Woodlands are a great place to search! A visual guide to frond architecture and line drawings of key features are also included. Frond structure and shape are key to fern identification.
- Hedgerows: A great introductory guide to the countryside, with beautiful colour paintings of the common woody plants, wildflowers, berries and seed heads, birds, mammals and invertebrates that live in the hedgerow. From butterflies to bumblebees, from centipedes to ladybirds, hedges are home to a huge number of insects.
- Tree name trail: Can you tell apart maple and sycamore? Beech and hornbeam? Pine, cedar, spruce and fir? Straightforward questions will quickly guide you to the right answers. Text on the reverse side covers the features of each tree, including leaf shape, flowers, bark, fruits and seeds, habitat, origin and commercial use. Co-created with the Forestry Commission.
- Woodlands: Trees, flowers and fungi: This guide features 61 trees, flowers, ferns and fungi of UK woodlands. With the help of this guide, there’s something to see all year round. While the best display of flowers is in spring, there’s still plenty to explore in autumn and winter, from fungi and evergreens to early flowers such as snowdrops.
