The greater part of the site (located in the north of Tenerife) is covered by a laurel Laurus forest growing on steep slopes and amongst cliffs. Introduced Pinus radiata is interspersed with Laurus at higher altitudes, and copses of Castanea sativa and exotic conifers at lower altitudes.
The site is important for both endemic Columba species, as well as for other laurel forest birds.
