Donheads Ancient Tree Project launched

Donhead St Mary and Donhead St Andrew, two parishes near to Shaftesbury are working together to locate and record all of their ancient, veteran and notable trees onto the Ancient Tree Inventory with help from Cranborne Chase AONB.

Potential recorders from the Donheads met at Wincombe House for their training day, where they found some lovely oak trees to record. The fattest oak recorded on the day was the Wincombe oak with a girth of 8m.

David Blake at Cranborne Chase is keen for all valuable trees to be identified in the AONB and has funded Steve Russell, a local forester, to help the Donheads Ancient Tree Project and to verify their new records.
