About this book

This is a black-and-white reprint by Wildtrack Publishing, with no changes compared to the previous edition.

Ancient woodlands and trees (wooded landscapes) are irreplaceable. Shaped and influenced by human activities for centuries, they are ancient living monuments and of high biodiversity conservation value. To protect ancient woodlands it is crucial that their history is recognised, recorded and used as a basis for management and conservation. A holistic approach to uncovering the history of a wood is needed, which includes archaeology, documentary and oral research, and ecology.

The Woodland Heritage Manual covers each of these disciplines and guides readers through relevant research and field surveys. Results can then be combined to paint a fuller picture of a wood's past, present and possible future. The manual has been developed through, and is an output from, the Woodland Heritage Champions Project. The examples of local projects given in the manual are from volunteers who took part in the Woodland Heritage Champions Project and been heavily involved in the development of the manual.
