About the reserve
Hogswood Covert is a damp, broadleaved woodland with several marl pits pools and wet ditches. The canopy is dominated by oak, alder and crack willow, with a locally dense understory of hawthorn, holly and hazel. Tall herbs are associated with the wetter regions of the wood, and dominate the areas where fallen crack willow has opened up the canopy. Common nettle, bramble and bracken are frequent throughout.
