Fossil records of Bracken Ferns (Pteridium aquilinum) date back to 55 million years ago, proving it to be an ancient plant species that brings great value to woodlands. These are especially important within habitats for various nesting birds and caterpillar moths, such as the garden tiger, brown silver-line, small angle-shades, orange swift, gold swift and map-winged swift.
