"It is a hornbeam–oak stand with varying dynamics, which is the most characteristic forest association of the Tornai-karszt, but beech woodlands and oak stands, that are richer in light and drier, occur as well. It is a real, so-called mid-forest or rather the remainder formed by having abandoned it. The area and the tree stand is varied (patchy), suitable for investigations of forest dynamics."
