Veteran Tree Trail project concludes


Over the last two years the Ancient Tree Forum has been working with City of London to setup Veteran Tree Trails at Ashtead Common, Burnham Beeches, Epping Forest and Hampstead Heath. The trails highlight the good practice veteran tree management that has been undertaken at these sites for the last 30 years. To publicise the project, launch events for professionals and guided tours for local users were held at each site during 2019. Despite the project coming to an end, the trails will continue to be available for people to visit and learn about veteran tree management at these sites. More information can be found here:
