Data reports

Maps and reports based on data from The Ancient Tree Hunt database. Find out how you can request specific reports.

The ATH database contains about 113,000 trees and readers can search and view individual tree information or in a list (see Trees & Maps / Tree search and Interactive map).

Request data reports & maps
On request the Ancient Tree Hunt can provide maps similar to the one produced for ash below (data maps for yew and oak are in the pipeline) showing the distribution of ancient, notable and veteran trees across the UK.

The ATH can also, on request, provide the results of the analysis of tree data (as of August 2011) according to the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) criteria for assessing hot spots of different value according to the number of ancient, veteran and large diameter trees.

These maps can be supplied at UK, country or county scale and for other designated areas such as AONBs, National Parks or landscape scale projects. Contact:

Highlights from the Ancient Tree Hunt database

The Darley Oak, Cornwall
The Darley Oak, Cornwall

Possibly 1000 years old and still going strong! The Darley Oak, on the edge of Bodmin Moor, has certainly seen some action in its time and has even been a venue for some rather unusual tea parties, as long ago as 1727 – inside a hollow in the trunk! Age began to take its toll and the great canopy section collapsed in the 1980s so the parties had to stop..

This wonderful tree is the subject of much local folklore, too, with special healing properties for various ailments and diseases. Its acorns, of which there were many in the past, were used as good luck charms during pregnancy. Allegedly, wishes will be granted to anyone who passes through the hollow and circles the girth.
