CALL FOR PAPERS
Taking a view that knowledge of landscape history can improve our understanding of the present countryside, we explore how this can help inform and influence decisions about ‘futurescapes’. With a nod to the Lawton idea of conservation needing to be bigger, bolder and more joined, we will explore ideas of wood pastures past, present and future and how these might inform Wilder Visions. The themes emerge as part of our long-term series of conferences and workshops going back to 1992 and bringing together multi-disciplinary approaches to consider trees, woods, treed landscapes, wilding & re-wilding, and most recently ‘Wood Meadows & Pastures’.
