The first national ATF event of 2018 will be to the Blenheim Palace Estate, World Heritage Site and the site of several Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

Our apologies, this event is now FULL.

The stately home at Blenheim sits among more than 2000 acres of landscaped parkland and gardens, and there are over 900 ancient and other veteran oak trees on the estate in the area known as High Park.

The ATF’s Spring field event will be an opportunity to find out about the history, ecology and management of the site’s veteran trees, and to debate and network with ancient tree experts.

    It may be known to the ATF that I am the recorder for ATI of all ancient and veteran oaks in High Park (Blenheim Park). Although High Park surpasses all other sites in numbers of ancient/veteran oaks equal or greater than 5.00 m girth, there are unlikely to be 900 ancient and veteran oaks. Living + dead oaks of this size presently count to 260 and I expect to find only 20-40 more at most. Smaller oaks are numerous, many planted by the 8th Duke around 1890, but these are not veteran, just mature. At present, I am leading a major biodiversity on this site, which is not open to the public.

    I meant a biodiversity survey in the previous comment.
