Trouble in the Woods – The new ‘Locust Years’ & the destruction of ancient woodland heritage in the UK

A 2-day seminar with the Landscape Conservation Forum Thursday 25 – Friday 26 April 2024

Chaired by Ian D. Rotherham and Ken Smith

This two-day event begins in Day 1 by celebrating the remarkable and unique heritage of ancient woodlands. To do this we introduce recent and current research in woodland archaeology and management and update on progress since the landmark publication of the ‘Woodland Heritage Manual’ in 2008. Day 2 will focus on the threats to this irreplaceable heritage and ecology posed by current forestry policies and woodland management prescriptions.
