Woodland trees

Medieval England was thickly wooded, even close to settlements. The most common woodland trees were the oak and the ash, particularly if the land was clay. (The sycamore was only introduced to England in the 16c.) However, on the chalky downs beech woods were vast. Lime, maple and elm preferred lowlands. The birch was found where it is today, in thinning woods, and also on neglected ground. -
