A survey of the Ariundle Oakwoods yielded evidence for past woodland management, mining activity and agriculture. Several kilometres of stone and turf dykes were planned, and woodland enclosures shown on Bald's Estate Plan of 1806/7 were identified. The woodland showed evidence of extensive tree planting and management on a coppice rotation, but there were no pollarded trees. The last comprehensive felling appears to have taken place c 1850.
