The Wzniesienia Łódzkie Landscape Park was founded in 1996 within the administrative boundaries of Łódź and Skierniewice provinces. It encompasses a fragment of the edge zone of Northern Brink Heights which is characterized by considerable relative altitudes and large slope declivities. In the upland landscape of the park old and sightly trees play a significant role. They grow most often in villages, next to places of religious worship and national memorials. While preparing an inventory, many trees fulfilling the criteria of a natural monument were found. Of these only some specimens have been subject to legal protection. Valuable old trees may be also found in rural parks. Within the Wzniesienia Łódzkie Landscape Park 5 objects of this type can be found, the most valuable of them being the ancient manor-park in Klęk. Due to inadequate professional care most of them are in a doubtful state.
