The vegetation includes holm oaks, common oaks, ash trees and white hornbeams. The shrub layer includes phillyrea latifolia, privet, hawthorne, juniper, blackthorn, crab grass and alder buckthorn. Butcher's broom, wild asparagus and ivy are found in the underbrush. The forest is populated by numerous chaffinches, thrushes and ringdoves. The non-migratory birdlife is mainly represented by pheasants and blackbirds; mammals include hares, badgers and weasel.
