The major part is a mixture of broad leaved woodland with mature oaks.
Coppice management is being restored in parts of the woodland.
Part of the ditch and bank boundary of the Deer Park that surrounded the Bishop of Worcester's palace at Alvechurch in medieval times runs through the middle of the wood and runs towards the river Arrow.
The accommodation is set in the eastern end of the wood, an area of secondary woodland that was a field some 50 years ago.
There is a varied diversity of fauna and flora. In springtime there is a carpet of bluebells and other woodland flowers.
Regular work parties are also held, usually on the first Sunday of the month. Many tasks are undertaken such as, hedge laying, care of newly planted trees, control of bracken etc.
