Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (a registered charity) is one of a network of 47 Wildlife Trust's around the United Kingdom which work to protect local wildlife by creating a "Living Landscape" which aims to recreate, reconnect and restore habitats where native species can thrive and local people can engage and enjoy the wildlife and green spaces around them. In one specific area (timber and woodlands) we are working in partnership with NEJ Stevenson towards our common aims, making a difference on a local level in Warwickshire.
The following article is the first of several which over the course of the year will give a comprehensive insight as to why native woodlands and sustainable woodland management are so important for both wildlife and people.
The composition and structure of today's woodland has been determined as much by its history of management as by the climate and soils. Without this conservation management many species of plants, including the animal and insect habitats that rely on them, would simply disappear altogether. Consequently ancient Woodlands (those which have existed since before 1600) are now recognised as the most important for nature conservation as many of the species found within them only colonise areas after they reach a certain age, and a certain point in their life cycle.
