We are lucky that Yorkshire has some amazing forest areas forming part of our natural landscape.
Some forests are within locally-owned estates although they are still open to the public to visit.
These forests can have a variety of tree species in their midst. From evergreens to deciduous types, these forests are not only important for our planet, they are also important for the wildlife, flora and fauna.
Forests have been here since time began and we know from fossil remains and precious materials such a jet that different species of trees have be present in our region in the long, distant past.
As winter progresses, and if you get chance, why not find your way to a nearby forest and enjoy the winter shapes and landscapes?
