The woods at Ballin Temple are a magical place to visit.  The small pocket of land has not been cultivated so the ecosystem exhibits a wide range of old growth trees, shrubs, mosses and lichens.  It is a last refuge for wildlife.

The late Andrew St Leger explains the value of old growth natuive woodlands in this CELT video: ''the terrestrial life support system of our planet''.
