Urban is all the woodland that is within a town’s boundary. It may be in form of shrub or larger tree covered areas. Peri-urban woodlands is all the woodland on the fringes of cities or towns between rural and urban areas. These are often larger blocks conventionally managed for recreation, biodiversity, timber production and other objectives.
