This flat area is of geoscientific interest because of its thin soil cover bordering on alvar, which in Sweden exists only on the islands of Gotland and Öland – and on the table mountains of Västergötland.
Healedet is one of the most valuable alvar grazing lands on Västergötland’s table mountains. The area contains a species-rich flora representative of alvars. The majority of the grazing land consists of herb-rich dry-meadow flora typical of alvars. There are many different species here, including dropwort, bloody geranium, willowleaf yellowhead, meadow oat-grass, oxeye daisy, cowslip, and burnet-saxifrage.
There are two ancient remains within the area. The north one contains a stone setting and remains of a stone circle. The south one contains a grave field with around 15 distinct ancient remains, among them a stone circle and several stone settings.
