Special Trees and Woods of Chilterns

The Chilterns AONB, with the help of local people have developed the Special Trees and Woods of the Chilterns Project. This very active group of tree enthusiasts scour their local area to find and record the most important trees within their landscapes so that they can be celebrated and managed sensitively and sustainably.

The Special Trees and Woods of the Chilterns Project ran for three and a half years and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to engage volunteers in recording hundreds of special trees and woods. The project has currently received extended funding to continue their work.

The project is helping the Ancient Tree Hunt by contributing hundreds of trees to the Ancient Tree Hunt database through work with their local volunteer verifier.
