We are famously a nation that celebrates trees!

Veteran Tree Project Northumbria

The aim of this project is to identify, map and celebrate Ancient, veteran, heritage and notable trees across the regions of Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. By so doing we will help to conserve and protect these trees for generations to come and enable our children and indeed our children’s children to also enjoy the pleasure and benefits that they provide.

Get Involved

If you care about trees and feel you can help then please volunteer or tell us your tree story. contact us today and get involved.

Tree Management

Human desire and needs cause conflict in our developing world. When that balance of nature is challenged then trees need our help. A range of management practices and strategies are available and may be considered to guarantee their continued long-term growth and survival.

Our Partners

We are working actively with a range of partner organisations without whose help and support this project would not be possible A huge thank you to them all…
