Banagher Glen consists of a complex system of river valleys with wooded areas surrounding the main Owenrigh River valley and its three tributary valleys all to the south.  The site has a history of continuous woodland cover, with the present woodland being over 200 years old.  Due to the underlying geology the site supports examples of both acid Oak woodland and a smaller component of base-rich Ash woodland.
