Background information and definitions
Intensively farmed areas have often lost much of their natural habitat structure, such as woodland, which would provide shelter, resources and structural variation for butterflies and moths. One option for encouraging species back on to farmland is the creation of small areas of woodland – or copses – within or at the edge of farmed land.
For studies on protecting existing trees, see “Protect in-field trees”.
