Trossachs Woodland Heritage

The Trossachs are so rich in historic woodlands and cultural landscapes, a theme we explored in a Dendrochronicle training workshop and guided walk this weekend (tutors Peter Quelch & Coralie Mills). Our hosts, the Trossachs Landscape Heritage Network and the Great Trossachs Forest, are involved in developing community landscape history/archaeology projects in the area, and have further training events lined up over the next few months. Our introductory Woodland Heritage workshop on Saturday looked at woodland history, archaeology and tree-forms, especially in old oak coppice, and was followed by the guided walk to Glen Gyle on Sunday where we explored the astonishing alder wood pastures and their associated old settlement remains.
