Several thousand years of human activity have contributed to the variety of landscapes found across the UK today. Surviving elements of the historic environment take many forms, and include ancient woodlands, veteran trees, earthworks, ruined structures and buried archaeological features. Together these elements provide a rich source of information about past societies and how they used and managed the land – including forests and woodlands.
