Wet Woodlands

Wet woodlands are the rarest of the wooded habitats in the U.K. within the Broads National Park there are just 3,000 hectares. Not all plants and trees can survive in wet soils but those that can have evolved a number of neat adaptations to cope with the conditions.


Peat is not only an amazing type of soil but also a huge carbon store and the reason the Broads National Park even exists!
