North Pembrokeshire Woodlands is an example of old sessile oak wood in the south-west of the habitatís range in Wales, and at the extreme west of its UK range at this latitude. The site is a complex of diverse woodland units, which range from strongly acidic upland oakwood to areas transitional to lowland oakwood; important fragments of floodplain woodland occur in the valley bottoms. A variety of management treatments are in place, with minimum intervention, managed high forest, active coppice, and well-established wood-pasture all represented. The woods have an exceptional diversity of rare epiphytic lichens.
