Figure 1.3 - Age profile of woodland in GB

previous | next  

Figure 1.3 is a bar chart showing the age profile of woodland in GB, for conifers and for broadleaves. The chart shows that the majority of conifers are aged 40 years or younger, and that very few are over 60 years old. Broadleaves are more evenly distributed across the age groups, but also show a reduction for older age categories.
