True Fox-sedge (Carex vulpine)

2025 target

Update monitoring data for this species, with a view to verifying any decline and what management action might appropriately address this (e.g. by managing the invasive growth of trees and scrub around pond and ditch margins).

Status

A rare plant whose Low Weald populations in Kent are of national significance.

Rationale

A rare plant of Low Wealden ditch and waterbody margins. Ponds and ditches are a defining feature of the Low Weald and if attention is given to this species, then it is likely that other Wealden wetland species will be encouraged, to the benefit of biodiversity.
