Big Tree Country

As the first Scottish partner to sign up to the Ancient Tree Hunt, Perth and Kinross are leading the way on securing the future of ancient trees. The Big Tree Country team have helped with sourcing volunteer verifiers and spreading the word about how important old, fat trees are to the landscapes.

With around 90,000 hectares of Perthshire covered in trees, the area boasts 22 of the Top 100 Heritage Trees of Scotland. No other region in the UK or Europe has such a remarkable or internationally important resource in terms of large, ancient trees.

Perthshire Big Tree Country encourages visitors to Scotland to visit its famous trees and stunning woodlands and continues to assist the Ancient Tree Hunt in gaining records of ancient trees and contributing them to our database.
