We will see how Britain was transformed once the ice sheets had disappeared approximately 16,000 years ago.

As the climate warmed trees moved north from Southern Europe but each species moved at a different pace so the landscape continually changed.

The meaning of the terms ‘native tree’, naturalised tree’, and ‘introduced tree’ will be discussed.

We will also see the impact that mankind and the industrial revolution has had on our treescapes as we move towards modern times.
