The latest issue of Wood Wise looks at the wonders of ancient trees. The UK has a large percentage of all the ancient trees left in Europe. They are vital for many specialist species and other wildlife, and are culturally important for people.
The articles in Wood Wise look at the definition of ancient trees and other trees of special interest, their ecology, future ancients, the veteranisation of trees, and identifying and protecting hotspots using data from the hugely successful ancient tree hunt.
