Fowey Valley Ancient Treescape

Analysis of recordings made by the Great Trees of Cornwall project have shown that this area is one of the top in the UK for its collection of special trees.

Since the Ancient Tree Hunt began, many trees of special interest have been added in and around the Fowey Valley by the Great Trees of Cornwall project, Tim Kellett – volunteer verifier, the Ancient Tree Forum Cornwall and the National Trust.

Analysis of this data shows this area to be one of the top areas in the UK for its special collection of ancient, other veteran and large diameter trees. The Woodland Trust is working with partner organisations primarily the National Trust and other landowners in the area to develop a resilient ancient treescape project. This is a wonderful example of putting this citizen science recording into practice to secure a future for ancient trees.
