Rural Tree Populations in England: Historic Character and Future Planting Policy

Gerald Barnes, Tobias Pillatt, Thomas Williamson

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

the authors show how the dominance of just three trees in the English farmed
landscape is not a result of ‘natural processes’, but a deliberate economic choice
made over centuries.
