Habitat & Ecology
Breeds in rather hard decaying timber (especially the boughs) with a white-rot, of various broadleaved trees.
Greystone Wood is part of a large complex of woodlands currently under commercial
management for timber.
Protection of ancient semi-natural woodlands from plantation forestry. Retention of dead and decaying timber.
