Event description
The Forest of Bowland : Ancient & Veteran Trees - why are they important and why are they under threat.

About this Event

What makes a tree ancient and veteran.

Why does our country have more veteran and ancient trees than any other country in Europe and why are they under threat?

Will there be the next generation of landmark trees here in the Forest of Bowland for future generations? What can we do about it ?

Ted Green MBE and Jill Butler of the Ancient Tree Forum are two of our leading specialists. Ted founded the Ancient Tree Forum and was awarded the Royal Forestry Society's Gold Medal in 2017. Ted will introduce the concept of working trees in the Bowland landscape.

The event is organised by the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team.

The event is free but voluntary donations to Champion Bowland CIO ( the charity that supports environmental projects in the AONB ) will go towards our Landmark trees campaign.
