When is a woodland not a woodland?

When it's horizontal?

Should make an interesting fungus farm, but a lot of this woodland is now horizontal at the eastern end. Mixed wood of Beech, Oak, Pine, Sweet Chestnut with some alder at the east end and who knows what else - this was gleaned from a stroll through the leaf litter. When I first walked through this woodland going on 20 years ago there were less than half a dozen fallen trees. Now the number may be pushing 20, including whole areas. The domino effect isn't helping some of them either, and the more exposed it gets the more vulnerable they are. Lots of nice mosses up there too.
