Abstract

Registers of tenant tree planting between 1769 and 1909 are examined. 5.13 million trees were planted. Registrations were highest in the decade 1810-29, declining sharply in the mid-1830s. Numbers of trees planted peaked in the 1820-29 and 1830-39 decades as plantations became prominent. Three quarters of trees planted were conifers and larch accounted for 51% of all trees planted. Landscape impacts of planting are discussed in comparison with present woodlands and trees
