Ancient trees saved in Wiltshire, England

Nearly 5,000 ancient trees under which King Henry VIII courted Jane Seymour have been saved by conservationists.

“A handful of Savernake’s trees are well over a thousand years old and have been here longer than some of Britain’s oldest buildings,” said Ben Lennon, planning and environment manager from the Forestry Commission.

“They are an important part of our cultural heritage and should be looked after in the same way we preserve ancient monuments.
