IUFRO The Advocate for Forest Science.
The conference "Trees beyond the Wood: an exploration of concepts of woods, forests and trees" conference held in Sheffield, September 2012, was a great success. It considered the historic context and implications of medieval 'woods' in relation to other wooded landscapes, and the status and importance of ancient or veteran 'worked' and culturally modified trees in countryside outside woods and forests. Importantly though, the aim was to take the understanding developed in a global context over the last 20 years and to apply it to guide practitioner applications in the field.
