Trees and forests are crucial to life on our planet: they generate oxygen, play host to a spectacular variety of wildlife and provide us with raw materials and shelter. They offer us tranquillity, inspire us and refresh our souls. Exploring Woodland is a series of guides from the Woodland Trust that describe and illustrate 101 woodland sites in different parts of the UK. Ilustrated with site maps and photographs, these are the essential woodland guides for all tree lovers. Both privately owned and public woods are included in the guides. There is a map of each site and clear information on how to find it, the type of woodland, the facilities available and what to look out for on your visit, including the wildlife that you may meet there. All sites have been visited by independent researchers so that the information in each book is up-to-date. Exploring Woodland: Wales covers an array of coastal and inland woodlands, with maps and directions for walks there.
The Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity, with over 120,000 members. It owns and cares for over 1,100 woods throughout the UK.
