Durham Biodiversity Partnership – Veteran Trees Project

This project included mapping of veteran, ancient and notable trees and whilst the project is no longer running the group is still interested in recording the location of these trees.

Veteran, ancient and notable trees can be native or introduced species and can occur in many different forms: maiden trees (a tree that has not been subjected to any form of cutting), coppiced, pollarded and many others.   They are interested in recording trees that have a particularly large girth for the species and display important wildlife and habitat features such as hollowing or associated decay fungi; decaying wood both within the trunk and in the canopy; sap runs; water-filled rot holes and loose bark and rotting stumps.

You can add find information on the survey and how to add a record here.
