Great Trees of East Devon

East Devon District Council has just completed a three year project called the Great Tree Hunt of East Devon. Funded predominantly by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the main aims of the project were:

• to discover and celebrate heritage trees in East Devon

• to support and train the parish tree wardens

• to work with schools

• to raise awareness of the importance of trees – particularly ancient trees – and how to look after them.

All the resulting information has been shared with regional surveys and the inclusion of the results into the Ancient Tree Hunt is the official outcome for the national awareness raising campaign relating to the importance of Devon's ancient trees to the landscapes of the UK.
