Beech and hornbeam arrived later and never made it far north -possibly limited by the lack of woodland cover. By the Neolithic period much of the UK was covered in wild woodland.

This probably included clearings and glades created by storms and maintained by grazing animals like aurochs (a now extinct large, wild cow) and wild boar.
