Protect ancient woodland - enough is enough
Irreplaceable habitats deserve better than this...
The ancient woodland habitats of the UK are our earliest native woods and priority wood pasture, and our oldest and most impressive trees. They are our richest land-based habitats; there’s still so much we can learn from these natural wonders.
