Whereas I spent my time in the woods (or in front of a TV).

Brynley, you seem to dig up some interesting articles.  You should look
into Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv

Hi Mark
I partially blame all the scary (woodland based) nursery stories we were
told as kids. Ha!
“If you go down to the woods today”….
And our prehistoric hard wiring.
Complex issue

Many municipalities in Canada do not like to plant conifers as the trees
may hide all sorts of nefarious activities (or so they believe).

Dear all
Just scanned this research - linked. It seems people find parks / open
spaces particularly scary, especially at night.

Can this be changed? Should it be?
With winter coming this perception limits people’s use of outdoor
space
during the short days.

Lighting in trees?
Thermal imaging monitoring?
Parks police?

What do you think?
