Significant Trees Project

Trees are a wonderful way to help people reconnect to nature around them. They are often focal points in a community and old friends from childhood. While there are projects to record veteran and champion trees, we think any tree can be significant to someone and is worthy of recording and celebration. That’s why, in collaboration UCC BEES, we have established a Significant Tree recording scheme that will train people to record significant trees in their communities. Significant Trees can be old, unusual species, connected to local folklore, beautiful, or simply a tree you love.

To learn how to record your Significant Tree you can watch the training videos:


The Methodology can also be downloaded in PDF format
