Description   Fine mature Kentish oaks are found throughout and, as is traditional in this part of Kent, hazel and sweet chestnut form the understorey. This 'standards with coppice' woodland form is one of the best combinations of vegetation, with long standing mature trees over a shorter rotation shrub layer producing a superb conservation mix.  Indeed here the woodland is part of the Combwell Woods SSSI Site of Special Scientific Interest - click for details.  This designation is for the ancient semi-natural woodland in Cats Wood, there are no ghylls (steep valleys) as described in the citation in this wood.  A small amount of 'wind blow' of some sweet chestnut coppice does provide a ready source of firewood. Blue markings will be found at the corners of the wood to indicate the boundaries.
