Forests and Landscape

The European Landscape Convention describes landscape as ‘an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors’. This is a wide-ranging and inclusive definition, and it covers all landscapes – including towns, villages and open countryside, whether natural or managed, and whether special or ordinary.
