Due to the special form of coppice usage the forest is flooded with much more light than in conventionally-used forests. This amount of light penetrating the tree canopy permits a thick covering of mosses and lichens to grow on the bizarrely shaped trunks of trees (i.e. as epiphytes), and also allows a strong undergrowth of dwarf shrubs such as Blueberry, Lingonberry and Heather.
On your hike through the coppice forests you can repeatedly enjoy views of the low-mountain landscape of the so-called "Caller Schweiz" (Calle Switzerland) region and you will walk around the Resmecke Stream valley that is characterised by grassland and hedgerows. There or in the surrounding wind-throw areas, you can with luck see the Red-backed Shrike. The Raven, which had become extinct in our region, has meanwhile returned and is again common in the countryside around Visbeck.
