Cover of Wood Wise Summer 2015 - ancient woodland restoration

This issue of Wood Wise looks at several woodland restoration projects.

In the last century, around half of our ancient woods were planted with introduced species such as non-native conifers. These are now gradually being removed to allow light back into the woodland.

We learn how this supports wildlife and enables native species to re-establish. And we discover how it can increase landscape resilience and generate revenue.
