Old trees are very special but read this issue to reveal how they are under threat...

The wildlife that depends on them will not survive if we lose them from our landscapes. Ancient trees are among the oldest and most complex organisms on the planet. They support a wealth of species and are important to our cultural history. Sadly, they face immense challenges from intensive farming and forestry, urban development and lack of understanding and care. Our spring 2014 Wood Wise looks at the ecology of ancient and veteran trees, work to identify and protect them, and examines what the future holds.
