This chapter explores the status of the trees located in Wytham. It examines the tree's physiology, including the composition and structure of shrub layers in Wytham. It describes the extent of the damage dealt to the area as a result of timber dependence during the First World War, and enumerates some of the steps taken in active forestry management such as the establishment of plantations of broadleaved and conifer trees. It emphasizes the objectives of the Forestry Department of Oxford University in managing and preserving Wytham Woods and looks into the efforts done by Fitzwalter Osmaston, Eustace Jones, and Henry Dawkins.
