Woodland in Britian!

British woodland has returned to the levels of the 1750s with tree cover having more than doubled since the end of the First World War, a United Nations report has shown.


Woodland in Britain now stands at 11,200 square miles, 11.8% of the total land area.


The growth, attributed in part to the boom because of tax breaks, could even reach the 15% of woodland recorded in England by the Doomsday Book in 1086!
