Despite being one of the wildest places in England, the Lake District has been shaped by people through centuries of upland farming. Supporting these traditional farming methods is therefore an important part of planning for the future of these landscapes. Woodlands are an even older aspect of our landscape. Ancient woodlands once cloaked vast areas of the Lake District. Today Friends of the Lake District is dedicated to restoring and recreating native woodlands, for the sake of the landscape, the wildlife and the people who enjoy them.
