Laelatu wooded meadow is a unique place in modern Europe. Since the grazing of natural pastures by cattle has ceased following the arrival of intensive agriculture, this kind of habitats have disappeared and modern wooded meadows in Estonia are a result of regular mowing (in order to avoid them growing full of woody plants, which actually decreases biodiversity). There are unique sceneries and lots of rare plants and mushrooms to study for botanists and mycologists to study.
